The trial judge in the Federal case, pending in the Southern District of New York, against Viktor Bout's co-defendant, partner and reputed money launderer, Richard Chichakli, has declined to recuse himself. Chichakli had filed an lengthy recusal motion, asking that the judge step down for a number of reasons.
