The delayed campaign finance trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards is now scheduled to begin in April.
U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Eagles ruled Thursday in Greensboro that jury selection will begin April 12, with the presentation of evidence to start April 23. Eagles expects the trial to last about six weeks.
Edwards has pleaded not guilty to federal charges of using campaign money to cover up an affair during his unsuccessful 2008 presidential candidacy.
Eagles also heard arguments over whether expected testimony by former Edwards aide Andrew Young and others should be admissible. Eagles said she would make a decision on those issues during the trial.
