ABSTRACT
The article reports that Charles Johnson, former CEO of PurchasePro.com, is trying to dismiss securities fraud charges against him before his new trial starts on October 9, 2007 in Alexandria, Virginia. He argues that the first trial ended in a mistrial and a new trial would result to double jeopardy. In his previous case, U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema declared a mistrial after Johnson's lawyer, Preston Burton Jr., withdrew from representing Johnson.
