A federal judge in Chicago refused to dismiss fraud charges against Norby Walters and Lloyd Bloom while attorneys for the two sports agents argued over witnesses.

U.S. District Judge George Marovich indicated he would not allow the first defense witnesses to testify, then called attorneys into his chambers to resolve the dispute.

Walters, 58, and Bloom, 29, are accused of defrauding seven universities of scholarship money by paying college athletes thousands of dollars to sign contract agreements before the athletes’ collegiate eligibility had expired.
