Bulger Case, Minus the Gangster, Returning Briefly to Court

James "Whitey" Bulger's case is returning to court Monday — minus the notorious Boston gangster himself. A three-judge panel of the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston will hear oral arguments from Bulger's lawyers, who are trying to overturn his racketeering convictions. Bulger's attorneys contend his right to a fair trial was violated when a judge barred him from telling the jury about his claim that a federal prosecutor promised him immunity.
