Judge Nicholas Garaufis just took a sledgehammer to Nxivm leader Keith Raniere's final hopes for having some or all of the various charges he's facing dismissed before next week's trial starts.

In a tightly-reasoned, heavily cited 64-page order, Garaufis takes on each of the technical arguments Raniere had made against the various racketeering, forced labor, and sex trafficking charges that he's facing.

Some of the arguments were actually originally made by his co-defendants, who have all pleaded guilty and are no longer facing trial. But Raniere joined in each of their objections, so Garaufis treated them as though they were Raniere's objections.
