High Court denies Blagojevich request for delay

The decision by Justice John Paul Stevens came shortly after the Obama administration opposed Blagojevich's request. The trial is now scheduled to begin June 3.

Blagojevich had asked the high court to delay his trial until the justices rule first in pending cases about the constitutionality of the federal honest-services fraud law. Prosecutors have charged Blagojevich with violating the fraud law and other crimes.
