Aaron Schock’s effort to throw out his criminal indictment, a major setback for the Illinois Republican’s efforts to avoid a trial on corruption charges. A district court judge rejected Schock’s motion to dismiss the case last fall, but Schock’s defense team appealed that ruling.

Secondly, in a more technical argument, Schock’s lawyers asserted that since reimbursement regulations were created by House rule, it would be a violation of separation-of-powers principles for the executive branch, via the Justice Department, to charge him with a crime.
