A federal judge on Monday refused to drop civil charges of insider trading against fast food magnate Carl N. Karcher and two members of his family. Instead, U.S. District Judge Edward Rafeedie determined that the lawsuit against the founder of Anaheim-based Carl Karcher Enterprises should begin trial as scheduled on May 2. "Whether circumstantial evidence is sufficient to warrant (a verdict against the Karchers) is a matter that should be presented to the jury," the judge said.
