After the Sun-Times reported this morning regarding jurors not heeding Judge James Zagel's orders to avoid reading and discussing media coverage of the Blagojevich case, Zagel seemed to deal with the issue behind closed doors.
He took lawyers into chambers this morning and started proceedings nearly 30 minutes late. When the jurors came out, Zagel reminded them about his order.
"Again, be careful to avoid contact with any media," Zagel said. "You must not communicate in any way" about the case.
