A judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has denied motions from Roger Stone to dismiss the charges pending against him, enjoin the prosecution of those charges and compel the government to provide discovery related to its decision to indict him in the first place. The charges in question were brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team in January 2019. While Judge Amy Berman Jackson noted that the government would need to provide Stone with the redacted sections of the special counsel’s report that pertain to him, she added that “the defense has not identified any legal grounds that would support” the motions in question.
