The corruption trial of Jimmy Dimora will begin Thursday morning with opening statements, now that his request to delay proceedings has been denied.
The Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals issued a ruling Tuesday rejecting arguments by Mr. Dimora’s lawyers that the trial should be postponed until the appellate court determines whether separate corruption-related indictments subject their client to double jeopardy.
“Dimora has not shown a clear and indisputable right to a stay of the jury trial pending his appeal,” a three-judge appeals court panel stated in its opinion.
