Before adjourning for the day, Zagel conferred privately with the attorneys in the case and told the defense lawyers to take tonight to think over their decision, according to the sources. Zagel said the trial would resume at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
The former governor had been expected to testify in his own defense starting this afternoon but did not take the stand.
Earlier today, during a lunchtime break in the trial, Blagojevich's lead attorney, Sam Adam Jr., wouldn't say whether Blagojevich would testify.
And Adam's father and co-counsel, Sam Adam Sr., said only: "Nothing is a certainty."
