A Manhattan federal judge said Thursday that she was eyeing a May trial in the criminal case of three men accused of defrauding donors in a private effort to fund the construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres of the Southern District of New York wrote in a one-page order that she had requested a May 16 trial date in the case, which once included former White House strategist Steve Bannon as a defendant.
