Iowa Judge Hears Motions In Slaughterhouse Trial
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) ― A U.S. District Court judge will take on several critical motions in the case against a former kosher slaughterhouse company and four of its top managers.
The hearing in the case against Agriprocessors, Inc., will be at 8 a.m. Monday in Cedar Rapids.
Judge Linda Reade will address a motion to change venue and a request to delay the trial, as well as former manager Sholom Rubashkin's motion to dismiss all 163 counts against him because of alleged abuse of the grand jury process.
Rubashkin and three co-defendants have pleaded not guilty to immigration, bank fraud, wire fraud and mail fraud charges.
The Agriprocessors slaughterhouse in Postville was raided by immigration agents in 2008.
It was sold to SHF Industries in July.
