PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Pennsylvania Superior Court has rejected State Sen. Jane Orie’s effort to put off her retrial on corruption charges.

Her first trial ended in mistrial after the prosecution alleged the defense offered forged documents and Judge Jeffrey Manning agreed.

The judge delayed jury selection for the retrial until the Superior Court ruled.

Orie’s lawyers argued the appeals court should reverse a number of Manning’s rulings, but the court rejected defense arguments.

That means the Orie retrial could begin soon unless the defense seeks another appeal from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
