Midshipmen Tra'ves Bush, Eric Graham and Josh Tate may face a court-martial on charges that they sexually assaulted a female midshipman.

A federal judge in Baltimore says she won't order the U.S. Naval Academy superintendent to recuse himself a sexual assault case involving three midshipmen.

U.S. District Judge Ellen Hollander said Monday she did not find grounds for the court to interfere in the separate military court proceeding.

Susan Burke, an attorney for the alleged victim in the case, sought the have the court remove Vice Adm. Michael Miller from deciding whether the case goes forward. She says Miller is angry at her client for making the case public and biased against her.

But Hollander noted that it would be unprecedented for the federal court to interfere with an ongoing Navy investigation in a separate court system.

The three midshipmen are accused of sexually assaulting a female midshipman.
