Washington - The United States Supreme Court won't hear former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver's corruption case.
He was convicted in 2015 of corruption charges related to his job but last year an appellate court overturned that. Yesterday the nation's top court denied Silver's appeal for a review which could have blocked his retrial. He's scheduled to be tried again in April.
State government is bracing for a parade of four other corruption trials this year. A trial involving a Cuomo aide and two executives from Fayettevlle's COR Development gets underway next week.
