BRADENTON, Fla. - The federal judge presiding over the criminal case against Birmingham, Ala., Mayor Larry Langford and two of his friends in the bond business has scheduled a conference call for Wednesday to discuss the status of the case.

While it is not clear from court documents what will be discussed in the call, Langford, his long-time friend and lobbyist Albert LaPierre, and Montgomery bond dealer William Blount have filed motions to have some of the counts against them dismissed because they claim some are duplicative.
