Reporting with Natasha Korecki

Ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his brother, Robert, are expected to arrive at the Dirksen Federal Building shortly. Barricades have been put up on Dearborn Street and reporters and camera crews are slowly gathering outside.

It's an unexpected development in what seemed at first to be -- and which could still turn out to be -- a simple court hearing about a jury question.

But the fact that the defendants were asked to show up does raise some eyebrows. Court personnel has not said anything about a verdict -- they normally do, when one is reached.

If the jury reveals that it is deadlocked, Judge James Zagel will likely tell them to keep deliberating and do their best to come up with a verdict.
