Reporting with Lark Turner
A potential juror who was questioned for Rod Blagojevich's retrial this morning, noted on her jury questionnaire that she had a potential conflict in May.
"You don't want to miss Oprah on May 10?" Judge James Zagel asked the woman.
Zagel asked if she had one ticket to attend the Oprah Winfrey Show, whose days in Chicago are numbered.
"Four tickets," she corrected him.
Zagel didn't indicate whether he'd suspend proceedings for the day in the event that the woman, who is a member of AFSCME Local 106, made the final cut and ended up on the jury.
She was one of more than half a dozen potential jurors who were questioned this morning, the second day of jury selection for the former governor's retrial.
Questioning is expected to conclude this week.
