Siegelman attorney files motion to set aside new trial denial

The attorney for former Alabama governor Don Siegelman has filed a motion to set aside U.S. Judge Mark Fuller's denial of a new trial.

The motion says the defense would like to seek more documents and information on U.S. Attorney Leura Canary. Canary recused herself from Siegelman's trial, but the defense says she was still involved to a degree.

Judge Fuller had denied Siegelman's latest appeal on the grounds that it was almost identical to the appeal made by co-defendant Richard Scrushy.
