Felner and business associate Schroeder are accused of fraudulently obtaining more than $2 million in grant money from UofL and the University of Rhode Island. Both men have pleaded not guilty.
This from WLKY:
In a motion filed Monday, U.S. attorneys argued that the evidence against Felner and Schroeder is nearly "identical," and that there's no need for a separate trial.
"Regardless of the intertwined evidence, the defendant can not demonstrate that prejudice warranting severance would result if the defendants were tried together," wrote assistant U.S. Attorney Bryan Calhoun.
