BALTIMORE — The defense team for Marilyn Mosby filed court motions to have her federal case against her dismissed.

The documents claim the case against Mosby is biased and not based on facts. Her defense team believes the timing is meant to interfere with her re-election as Baltimore's City State's attorney.

The motion states Mosby was prevented from testifying before the grand jury and that the government excluded exculpatory evidence she provided in her case. The defense claims the grand jury focused on indicting Mosby instead of seeking the truth.

This comes after a status report on the federal case against Marilyn Mosby was filed on Friday.

The report states that the Government is ready to proceed with trial. Mosby's defense team in response is requesting a speedy trial, that would be as early as possible, no later than April.

The defense team will also be filing the following motions: "Motion to Dismiss the Indictment a Motion for a Bill of Particulars, and a Motion to Disqualify Government Counsel."

The Governments response is due on March 4 and Mosby's defense teams replies are due on March 18.
