A federal judge has denied the request of former Green Beret Michael Taylor to move his criminal trial from Utah to Boston, where his family and business are located.
U.S. District Court Judge Tena Campbell issued the order Friday, citing "intervening events," but did not provide any specifics. The judge left open the possibility for Taylor to renew the request in the future.
Taylor, 51, is charged in two criminal cases with multiple counts of conspiracy, fraud, money laundering and obstruction of justice. He is being held in the Tooele County Jail until his trial, which is set to begin Nov. 26. American International Security Corp., Taylor's company, also is named in one of the criminal cases.
