The judge in the corruption trial of U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, D-New Jersey, is expected to rule Monday on a defense motion for a mistrial.

Thursday’s mistrial motion was prompted by a ruling from U.S. District Judge William Walls that barred the defense from presenting testimony from Marc Elias, a Perkins Coie lawyer who represented Menendez in an ethics probe by the U.S. Senate before his indictment. Defense lawyers also cited several prior rulings by Walls limiting what evidence the defense could  present the jury to support the mistrial motion.
