N.J. Senator Menendez Bribery Case Remains in Home State

U.S. Senator Robert Menendez’s bribery case will remain in his home state of New Jersey, a judge ruled in an early setback for the indicted lawmaker.

The Democrat was indicted April 1 on charges of taking almost $1 million in campaign donations, luxury travel and other gifts from Salomon Melgen, a Florida eye doctor. Melgen, who was charged with Menendez, joined the senator’s change-of-venue request to U.S. District Judge William Walls in Newark.
