    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that allegations of political interference in the handling of a home development proposal in southern Arizona warrant the public release of several confidential records.

Richard DeLisi has been incarcerated since 1989 when, at the age of 40, he was convicted on charges of racketeering, trafficking in cannabis and conspiracy after agreeing to help smuggle more than 100 pounds of marijuana from Colombia into Florida.
