Bid-rigging trial delayed


U.S. District Judge Danny Reeves has postponed the trial for three men charged in a bid-rigging case to be held in Covington.

Reeves filed the order on Monday to change the trial date from April 28 to June 23 to allow defense lawyers more time to prepare.

Former Transportation Secretary Bill Nighbert, road contractor Leonard Lawson and Lawson aide Brian Billings are accused of steering state highway construction contracts to Lawson’s companies. The three have entered not guilty pleas.
