In court filings this week, attorneys for Dr. Randeep Mann ask that U.S. District Judge Brian Miller not allow prosecutors to introduce evidence about prescription drugs that Mann allegedly distributed between 2006 and 2009.
The doctor faces no drug charges. He's charged in the February 2009 bombing that hurt Dr. Trent Pierce, and also faces illegal weapons charges. Attorneys for Mann say introducing evidence about drugs is irrelevant and would unfairly prejudice the jury.
Prosecutors say details of the drugs are evidence of Mann's motive: as retaliation against the medical board.
The case goes to trial next month.
