Judge denies Schock attorneys' request for access to grand jury transcripts

Attorneys for former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock won't get to review grand jury transcripts, as requested. 

In March, Schock's legal team filed a motion for discovery of the grand jury materials. While most defendants don't get that opportunity, the team says circumstances in this case are "anything but normal." 

U.S. District Judge Colin Bruce says Schock's team is "seeking truly extraordinary relief from this court," and denied the request for the materials. 

Schock is scheduled to have a telephonic scheduling hearing Friday. His trial is scheduled for July, but his attorneys requested it be pushed back to next year.
