A decision is expected to come Monday as to whether the federal corruption trial of State Senator Malcolm Smith will move forward.

Smith faces charges of bribery, extortion and wire fraud in a scheme to allow the Democrat to run for mayor last year on the Republican line.

Proceedings had been put on hold while prosecutors had over 28 hours of conversations in Yiddish translated.

Smith's attorney has been pushing for a mistrial.

Former City Councilman Dan Halloran is a co-defendant in the case. His attorney is looking to have the indictment dismissed based on prosecutorial misconduct.
