Lawyers meet privately with judge; media awaits hearing on jury question

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

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.

Come on, I want to know! Imagine how Blago feels right now, LOL.

Hopefully the people on the jury are a bit brighter than "Blago Sphere." Your comment shows a profound ignorance of the process. You just can't say the judge, prosecutor and the defendants' attorneys are conspiring behind closed doors without a scrap of evidence to back that up.

we're waiting

Whenever the collective masses with law degrees meet behind closed doors; that menas that somebody is going to get screwed, and they don't want anyone outside the room to know; or figure out, how it happened.
