Menendez appealed his case to a Philadelphia court, arguing that part of the Constitution prevents the judiciary from questioning his activity as a legislator.

Lowell said the senator maintains his innocence. Menendez and Melgen have pleaded not guilty to the charges they faced in the 22-count indictment.

In its ruling a year ago, the appellate court said the question of whether Menendez deserved constitutional immunity turned on whether five specific actions were "inherently legislative", as the senator claimed. "It was not to engage in true legislative oversight or otherwise influence broad matters of policy".

"It's disappointing that the Supreme Court did not take this opportunity to set a clear, bright line of the separation of powers to ensure that Congress remains an independent and co-equal branch of government, free of interference and retribution from the executive as the Framers intended", said Abbe Lowell, a lawyer for the Democratic senator. Stevens was killed in a 2010 plane crash.
