The judge in Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens' invasion of privacy case has not ruled on whether the sexual history of the woman who had an affair with Greitens is relevant for trial.

Judge Rex Burlison said at a hearing Wednesday that he didn't want to discuss the issue in open court. It's unclear when he will rule.

Jury selection begins Thursday in the Republican governor's felony case. St. Louis prosecutors want to exclude the woman's sexual and counseling history from the trial. Greitens' attorneys filed a motion Tuesday saying the woman's sexual history is "a very relevant issue to her credibility."

Greitens and his St. Louis hairdresser had a months-long affair in 2015, before he was elected. He's accused of taking a compromising and unauthorized photo of her. He has admitted to the affair but denied criminal wrongdoing.
