Hurtgen Hearing Uneventful, Next Set for June 7
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office in Chicago said both sides asked for more time to complete discovery at last week's status hearing in the trial of former Gov. Thompson aide P. Nicholas Hurtgen.
In May 2005, Hurtgen, an executive with Bear Stearns in Chicago, was indicted on fraud charges for allegedly participating in a scheme to obtain multi-million dollar contracts for his business through construction kickbacks or other fraudulent deals.
The spokesman, Randall Samborn, said another status hearing has been set for June 7.
