Pretrial hearing to resume on Orie ’campaign’ case



Published: Tue, December 14, 2010 @ 8:39 a.m.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A pretrial hearing in Pittsburgh is set to enter its second day in the case of Republican state Sen. Jane Orie, who is charged with illegally using her legislative staff to do campaign work for herself and her sister, Supreme Court Justice Jane Orie Melvin.

Allegheny County Judge Jeffrey Manning is hearing evidence and arguments on a request by prosecutors for an out of county jury; whether some search warrants for phone and office records in the case were legal; and, finally, whether the conflict of interest statute used to charge Orie is unconstitutionally vague.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the judge intends to rule on the pretrial issues at the hearing’s conclusion, or at some other point before the trial begins Feb. 7.
