ATLANTA (AP) -- A judge has set the trial date for former Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell for September 26th on federal racketeering charges.

U-S District Court Judge Richard Story will preside over the case. Campbell also is charged with bribery and tax evasion.

He has denied the charges. Campbell insists he never accepted illegal campaign contributions or payment for certain official actions while he was mayor from 1994 to 2002.

He is suspected of awarding an additional 80 million dollars to United Water, which had received a 20-year, 21-point-four million dollar a year contract to operate the city's water system.

Campbell has said he never authorized the payments and lacked the authority to do so."
