ARMONK, N.Y. — There’s not much left for the judge to decide before the drugged-driving case against Kerry Kennedy goes to trial in suburban New York.

But when – and where – to have the trial may come up at a court session Tuesday.

Kennedy, ex-wife of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, daughter of Sen. Robert Kennedy and niece of President John Kennedy, was arrested last year after swerving her Lexus into a tractor-trailer.

Blood tests found a small amount of a sleeping drug. She says she accidentally took a sleeping pill.

The judge refused to dismiss the case in May. No motions have been filed since.

Lawyers have been scouting for a bigger space than the 60-seat courtroom in the town of Armonk, N.Y.

One attorney said that won’t be able to hold the expected spectators and reporters.
