A Motion Too Meritless to Deny

Michael Tarn reports for AP from Chicago:

A federal judge on Monday brushed off a request from former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to cancel his upcoming retrial on political corruption charges, suggesting it amounted to a public-relations exercise.

At a pretrial status hearing, Judge James Zagel stopped just short of dressing down defense lawyers, but showed clear disdain for the motion by refusing to even rule on it. Instead, he said the motion would "vanish into thin air" and "die."
