Judge Jeffrey Manning today set a new trial date for state Sen. Jane Orie for April 11.

Yesterday, Judge Manning declared a mistrial after the case went to the jury because of questions about whether documents entered into evidence by the defense had been altered.

Ms. Orie's attorney, William Costopoulos, said he would seek an appeal asserting that a new trial would violate his client's right to avoid double jeopardy.

That is due by March 25 and action on it could set back the new trial date for many months.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
