U.S. judge denied Trump adviser Stone’s request for a new trial: filing

Feb 12, 2020 | ,

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A federal judge has rejected a request by U.S. President Donald Trump ally Roger Stone for a new trial, according to a court filing released on Wednesday, a day after a Justice Department reversal over sentencing prompted prosecutors to resign from the case.

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, in a Feb. 5 order, said the Republican operative’s lawyers had “not presented grounds for a new trial … or any reason to believe there has been ‘a serious miscarriage of justice.'”
