NEW YORK — The Latest on Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman (all times local):

7:25 p.m.

Lawyers for Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman (wah-KEEN' el CHAH'-poh gooz-MAHN') say they're disappointed a judge won't dismiss his New York drug trafficking case.

El Chapo was transported from Mexico to New York in January to face charges he oversaw a multibillion-dollar international drug trafficking operation that laundered money and oversaw murders and kidnappings. His lawyers say the U.S. government charged him with different crimes after he was en route to the U.S.

A judge ruled Friday that El Chapo can't raise the issue without protest or objection from Mexico.

El Chapo's lawyers say they believe his rights were violated and hope the Supreme Court decides favorably for him.

Prosecutors say El Chapo will have to answer for a life of crime.

His case is set for trial in April.

A federal judge says he won't dismiss the New York drug trafficking case against Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman (wah-KEEN' el CHAH'-poh gooz-MAHN').

Lawyers for El Chapo argue the U.S. government violated international law by charging him with different crimes after he was extradited.

Judge Brian Cogan ruled Friday that El Chapo can't raise the issue without protest or objection from Mexico.

El Chapo was transported from Mexico to New York in January to face charges he oversaw a multibillion-dollar international drug trafficking operation. He has pleaded not guilty. He has been held at an ultra-secure jail that has housed some of the world's most dangerous terrorists and mobsters.

Prosecutors say El Chapo is known for a life of crime, violence, death and destruction and will have to answer for that.

His case is set for trial in April.
