Judge won't bow out of Roger Stone case

The federal judge who sentenced President Donald Trump's longtime adviser Roger Stone to more than three years in prison last week has decisively rejected a defense request that she drop off the case before ruling on a pending new trial motion challenging the conduct of a juror at his trial.

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson's sharply worded order also dressed down Stone's defense team for using the court's docket to air what she said were meritless claims that she is biased against him.

"At bottom, given the absence of any factual or legal support for the motion for disqualification, the pleading appears to be nothing more than an attempt to use the Court’s docket to disseminate a statement for public consumption that has the words 'judge' and 'biased' in it," Jackson wrote Sunday.
