The courtroom is awaiting the start of the much-anticipated opening statements. Everyone is seated and waiting for Judge James Zagel to begin the session.
Meanwhile, the overflow room -- a courtroom down the hall from the proceedings that has audio from the trial piped in -- is silent and chock full. "Shoulder to shoulder," a court security officer is shouting as people slide onto the packed wooden benches.
Opening statements are now about 15 minutes late.
Zagel has just entered the courtroom.
