A federal judge is halting the discovery process in a lawsuit claiming Star Scientific Inc. misled investors.
The order from the judge says all preparation for that suit will stop until the government completes its case against former Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen.
Federal prosecutors argued the indictment against the McDonnells is based on some of the same allegations in the lawsuit.
The McDonnells were indicted last week after a lengthy federal investigation of their relationship with then Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams.
