The Spanish judge known for going after Augusto Pinochet and Osama bin Laden will go on trial himself on Jan. 24 for allegedly overstepping his jurisdiction in a probe of Spanish Civil War crimes, his lawyer said Tuesday.

Judge Baltasar Garzon was indicted and suspended provisionally from his National Court post in 2010 for allegedly violating his jurisdiction by probing the execution or disappearance of civilians at the hands of supporters of Gen. Francisco Franco during and after the 1936-39 war.
