Ray Nagin asks for trial delay

Former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin wants a federal judge to postpone his bribery trial, but the feds say there’s no reason.

Nagin’s camp wants more information about a Justice Department probe of anonymous online comments posted by at least three federal prosecutors.

But in Friday’s filing the U.S. Attorney claims that all of the former prosecutors that were involved in the internet scandal were gone from the office before Nagin was even indicted.

This all comes after a federal judge tossed out the convictions of five NOPD officers in the Danziger Bridge case earlier this week citing grotesque prosecutorial misconduct.
