NY Judge in Turkish Gold Trader Prosecution Won’t Leave Case

Turkish-Iranian gold trader Reza Zarrab failed to persuade the New York judge handling his U.S. bank laundering prosecution to step down from the case.

U.S. District Judge Richard Berman refused to disqualify himself Thursday after Zarrab complained about the judge’s disclosure that he participated in a legal conference in Istanbul in 2014.
