Judge weighing bail eligibility for 'Newburgh Four'

A federal judge in White Plains is still deciding if three of the four suspected terrorists from Newburgh will be eligible for bail.

The accused suspects, dubbed the "Newburgh Four," have been in jail for more than a year after they allegedly plotted to bomb synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down military planes at Stewart Air Base in Orange County.

Today, defense attorneys asked for the trial to be dismissed altogether because they claim their clients' right to due process was violated.

The trial was supposed to begin June 14, but was postponed indefinitely because the prosecution wasn't ready to produce key documents allegedly due to a misunderstanding.
