Pharma bro Martin Shkreli will be tried separately from his former business lawyer on securities fraud charges, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

Brooklyn U.S. District Court Judge Kiyo Matsumoto said that Shkreli's constitutional right to a fair trial would be at "serious risk" if he was tried side by side with co-defendant Evan Greebel, since Greebel's criminal defense attorney had threatened to act as "a second prosecutor" against Shkreli.

Shkreli, 34, will go on trial first, beginning June 26.
