    Former Bridgeport Mayor Joseph Ganim is heading to the state Supreme Court today in an attempt to win back the law license he lost when he was jailed on corruption charges.

    Ganim was convicted in 2003 on federal charges of bribery for accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in wine, custom clothes, cash and home improvements and served seven years in prison.

    Last year, a three-judge panel rejected his request to get his law license back.

    The three Superior Court judges said that Ganim's conduct was a deliberate and repeated pattern of dishonesty and corruption.
