U.S. judge will not dismiss accused Mexican drug lord El Chapo's indictmentBy Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) – A U.S. judge on Friday rejected an effort by Joaquin Guzman, the accused Mexican drug lord known as “El Chapo,” to dismiss a massive international narcotics conspiracy indictment on the ground he was extradited improperly to Brooklyn. While not challenging the merits of the case, Guzman’s lawyers claimed that the indictment violated the extradition treaty between the United States and Mexico because Mexican authorities initially agreed to extradite their client only to southern California or western Texas.
