Robert Wiesner back in court
Rochester, N.Y. No ruling from a judge yet on whether the case against Robert Wiesner, the husband of Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks, should move forward.
Wiesner is one of four people charges in an alleged bid-rigging scheme involving the countys local developmental corporations.

Wiesners lawyer claims this is a political prosecution and he wants the attorney general to turn over all emails and text messages to prove that.

The judge will issue a decision next month.
