Christopher Deedy took the witness stand during his original trial last year.

HONOLULU -

The federal agent involved in a high profile McDonalds shooting will not see his case dismissed, despite a request to the court.

Christopher Deedy is accused of killing Kollin Elderts inside a Waikiki McDonalds.

Deedy called upon a Supremacy Clause which allows federal law to trump state law. The agent insists he was acting within his duty as a federal agent on the night of the shooting and should not be charged.

Monday afternoon Judge Karen Ahn rejected his claim.

Jury selection is underway in his re-trial which is expected to begin in July.
