Reporting with Natasha Korecki and Dave McKinney
Attorneys are gathering outside Judge Zagel's courtroom for a morning check-in -- although the reason for the meeting is unclear. A crowd of reporters is chatting while they wait; prosecutors are camped out down the roped-off hallway, outside the judge's closed door.
Earlier, defense attorney Sam Adam Jr. chatted with the media in the cafeteria downstairs. He said Rod Blagojevich remains mostly homebound while he awaits the verdict, but is keeping up his jogging routine.
Someone asked Adam an off-the-cuff question: If this story were turned into a movie, what actor would play you?
His answer: Danny DeVito.
