Berlusconi trial staying put


ROME -- A day after lawyers for Italian media mogul Silvio Berlusconi filed to have his corruption trial moved to a different city, a circuit judge denied the motion, sidestepping the possibility that the trial could be delayed for the fifth time in as many months.

Berlusconi, a three-time prime minister charged with paying British lawyer David Mills to lie under oath, could be forced to appear in court to answer charges as soon as April.
