U.S. opposes changing NJ Senator Menendez’s corruption trial schedule

(Reuters) – Federal prosecutors on Friday opposed a last-ditch effort by New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez to allow periodic delays in his federal corruption trial in Newark, New Jersey, next month so that he can travel to Washington to cast critical Senate votes.

Boston now has just four players on its roster from last season’s team that won an East-best 53 games. That’s 11 players gone fromRead More
