Lawyers for former Jack Abramoff associate Kevin Ring have asked a federal judge to delay their client’s retrial in order to give the U.S. Supreme Court time to rule on three cases that could affect his defense.

The three cases, including the yet-to-be-argued Skilling v. United States, address the federal honest services statute, which prosecutors used to charge Ring on six separate counts of fraud. In October, U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle of the District of Columbia declared a mistrial in Ring’s case after a jury deadlocked on all eight counts against him. His new trial is currently set for June 21.
