ALBANY - Lawyers for former state Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno are asking a judge to dismiss the federal charges against him.

Bruno's attorneys filed the motions in U.S. District Court in Albany yesterday.

Bruno, now 83 years old, was convicted of honest services fraud in 2009.

His conviction was thrown out by a federal appeals court.
