Headline Legal News Posted on

Attorneys representing indicted U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez and a donor who's charged with bribing him in exchange for political favors are due in court in New Jersey.

The pretrial conference is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in Newark.

Menendez was indicted this month on charges he accepted nearly $1 million worth of gifts and travel from longtime friend and Florida-based ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen.

Menendez is accused of trying to get the State Department to intervene in a contract dispute involving a business Melgen owned in the Dominican Republic and advocating for Melgen in a Medicare billing dispute for several years.

Melgen has been charged separately with Medicare fraud.

The trial is scheduled for mid-July.
