CHICAGO (Reuters) - The federal arraignment of former U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Dennis Hastert was moved to June 9, according to a court filing on Tuesday.

Hastert, who has been charged in an alleged effort to hide $3.5 million in payments he made to conceal past misconduct, had been scheduled for arraignment on Thursday in United States District Court in Chicago. The court did not give a reason for the change in date.
