Indicted businessman Tim Durham is trying to get his conspiracy and fraud case thrown out of court.

Prosecutors say Durham and two business partners defrauded more than 5,000 investors of more $200 million in a Ponzi scheme.

Our news-gathering partners at The Indianapolis Star report that Durham's attorney claims federal investigators received information from their client's telephone before they got a warrant in November 2009.

Durham is currently out of jail on bond and federal prosecutors say they will fight dismissing the charges.
