MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexico's judiciary has suspended three federal judges pending an investigation into court judgments that benefited casino owners. It's the largest purge of allegedly corrupt federal judges in recent years.

The Federal Judiciary Council says in a Thursday statement that a disciplinary process has been opened against federal judges Eduardo Ochoa Torres and Javier Ruben Lozano Martinez in the northern state of Nuevo Leon and Jose Manuel Rodriguez Puerto in neighboring Tamaulipas state.

The council didn't identify the casino owners who were allegedly benefited by the judges' rulings.
