BOSTON (AP) — The list of 27 people a Massachusetts mayor charged with extortion cannot contact while his case is pending has been amended.

After a meeting in the judge's chambers during a bail review hearing at U.S. District Court on Friday, the defense and prosecution agreed to lift the no-contact ban for several people tied to the ongoing case against Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia.

The names were not disclosed in court and Correia's attorney, Kevin Reddington, refused to reveal them outside court. Correia was not present.

Correia is free on $25,000 bond after pleading not guilty to extorting hundreds of thousands of dollars from marijuana companies.

The city council this week voted to temporarily remove Correia from office, but Correia said the council does not have that authority and is refusing to leave.
