State Senator Malcolm Smith and former Councilmember Dan Halloran will need to wait until February to find out with some of the charges against them will be dropped.

A judge Friday did not decide on motions to dismiss some of the charges against State Senator Malcolm Smith and former Councilmember Dan Halloran.

Halloran’s case was adjourned until February 28, according to sources. A spokesperson for Smith could not confirm his next court date.

After pleading not guilty in April, Halloran and State Senator Malcolm Smith, along with other defendants in the case, initially appeared in court in July to fight some of the charge against them.

Officials said Smith, a Democrat, bribed county GOP bosses to let him run for mayor as a Republican.

Halloran is accused of setting up meetings between Smith and county leaders and negotiating payoffs. He allegedly pocketed nearly $21,000 in cash and offered up councilmember item cash in exchange for bribes, officials said.

Vincent Tabone, ex-vice chair of the Queens County Republican Party, and Joseph Savino, former chair of the Bronx County GOP, allegedly took at least $40,000 in cash bribes as part of the conspiracy, authorities said.
