`Natwest 3' Judge Sets Trial, Rejects Bias Claim

September 07, 2006|From Reuters

The judge in the case of the former British bankers known as the "Natwest Three" set their trial for next year and rejected a defense motion that he quit the case because of possible bias.

David Bermingham, 43, Giles Darby, 44, and Gary Mulgrew, 43, have been accused of conspiring with rogue Enron executives in 2000 to defraud National Westminster Bank of $19 million.

U.S. District Judge Ewing Werlein set alternate trial dates for Feb. 5 and Sept. 4, 2007, in the hope that defense lawyers can be ready earlier than expected.
