WHITE PLAINS - Prosecutors are seeking a protective order in the so-called “Corridor of Corruption” case.

Prosecutors are asking a judge for a protective order on evidence that's not already part of the public record and does not pertain to the six defendants. They are arguing that it could potentially damage the ongoing investigation.

Defense attorneys say the order would create added burdens in presenting their defense.

All six defendants are accused of participating in a major bribery scheme and trying to rig the New York mayoral race.

The judge will rule on the protective order at a later date.
