LOS ANGELES: Doug Dowie, the former Fleishman-Hillard executive facing trial for allegedly pushing the agency's staff to pad bills, will not be allowed to use the results of a self-administered polygraph test as evidence.

In a ruling that was expected, presiding US District Judge Gary A. Feess said that Dowie could present his side by testifying if he wished.

Dowie and codefendant John Stodder are facing wire fraud and conspiracy charges related to padding bills on work done by Fleishman for the LA Department of Water & Power. The trial is set to begin in November.
