Judge hears case to dismiss Kazeminy suit
Lawyers will present their case in front of a Texas judge today in hopes of having the lawsuit against Norm Coleman donor Nasser Kazeminy dismissed.
Kazeminy is accused of trying to funnel $75,000 to Coleman's family his wife's business. Coleman isn't part of the lawsuit, but both Kazeminy and Coleman have denied the allegations.
The lawsuit came up just days before Election Day last year where Coleman eventually lost to Al Franken. Coleman called it a last-second political move to destroy him, but no connections to Franken have been reported.
The civil case was filed by one of Kazeminy's business associates and has been delayed as the company tries to gather evidence for their defense.
