Reporting with Natasha Korecki
A crowd of reporters has gathered on the 25th floor of the Dirksen Federal Building, awaiting a 2:30 public hearing about a jury question.
But in the meantime, something a bit out of the ordinary -- attorneys are having a closed-door conference with Judge James Zagel. They were told to meet him in the courtroom at 2 p.m.
We don't know if they're privately discussing the jury's question before it is made public in open court, or if they're talking about something else entirely. But it certainly has the media abuzz with the possibilities.
