Judge rejects Nagin’s request to dismiss his indictment

Former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin’s bid to have his 21-count indictment thrown out was rejected by a federal judge Friday.

Nagin’s attorney, Robert Jenkins, argued the former mayor couldn’t receive a fair trial in the wake of a scandal over internet comments posted by prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Nagin’s trial is set to begin October 28.
