Senator Stevens was unduly prevented from campaigning for reelection, the motion states. Stevens was narrowly defeated in his re-election bid last month.
Defense attorneys also filed two additional motions, one seeking to dismiss portions of the indictment as repetitive and another asking for Stevens to be acquitted.
