Chicago trial of man accused of terrorism on track for November despite Snowden-related delays

A Chicago terrorism trial is on track to begin this fall despite repeated delays due to legal issues tied to Edward Snowden's revelations regarding expanded phone and Internet spying.

Adel Daoud's lawyers and federal prosecutors said at a hearing Wednesday they're set to go to trial as scheduled on Nov. 10.

The 20-year-old suburban Chicago man denies trying to ignite a bomb outside a Chicago bar in 2012.

An appeals court recently ruled that defense attorneys preparing for trial can't view documents about Daoud submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. Documents leaked by Snowden show the secret court approved expanded surveillance programs in the U.S.

Defendants sometimes announce plea deals before trial, but there's been no word of negotiations in Daoud's case.
