U.S. District Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer rejected the request by Ryan's lawyers Wednesday in a 55-page opinion.

Ryan was charged in December with racketeering conspiracy, mail fraud, tax fraud, filing false tax returns and making false statements as part of the government's six-year Operation Safe Road investigation.

He has pleaded innocent to all charges. Ryan's trial is scheduled for March of 2005.
