SEATTLE (AP) A Russian man charged with hacking into U.S. businesses to steal credit card information will try to convince a federal judge that his arrest in the Maldives was illegal and his indictment should be dismissed.

The U.S. Secret Service agents who snatched Roman Seleznev at a Maldives airport plan to testify Thursday that their actions were legal.

Seleznev's lawyers say the agents violated the law when they took him into custody and put him on an airplane. Seleznev is the son of a Russian Parliament member, and Russian authorities condemned the arrest.

Federal prosecutors call Seleznev a leader in the marketplace for stolen credit cards. They are expected to argue that Seleznev's 40-count indictment should remain intact and his case should go to trial in May 2016.
