Prosecutors must make motion in Bruno trial by Monday


ALBANY, N.Y. - Federal prosecutors in the case against former New York State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno have to meet an important deadline on Monday.

Bruno's lawyers want to limit the evidence that can be used against him during his second trial in Albany.

Bruno was acquitted of criminal charges at his first trial back in December 2009. Prosecutors have to respond to the motion by Monday.

His new trial will focus on charges that he took payments from a friend whose company had business pending before the state government.

Under the latest indictment, prosecutors say Bruno accepted more than $400,000 in kickbacks from a businessman for helping with state grants.

Bruno is slated to go on trial May 5, 2014.
