There's a long legal history here. The Marion County Court denied his request to dismiss the charges. He appealed that ruling. The appeals court upheld the charges.

This new action requests that the state supreme court looks into the issue.

Tanoos's legal team has argued that the prosecution has not proven actual wrong-doing under state code.

They say there was not a specific quid-pro-quo.
