As courtroom waits, Blagojevich lawyers and prosecutors likely discuss jury picks

Reporting with Natasha Korecki

While courtroom spectators and a pool of just over 40 potential jurors wait, Blagojevich lawyers and prosecutors have been in discussions behind closed doors this morning.

Both parties just re-entered the courtroom and exited again, presumably to begin discussing who to cut from the assembled pool of potential jurors. Upon re-entering the courtroom after discussions in Judge James Zagel's chambers, lawyer Lauren Kaeseberg gave Blagojevich a faint smile and quick eyebrow raise, while prosecutor Reid Schar pointed to a top FBI agent and called him over.

Then lawyers exited to the hallway, where they are likely discussing jury picks.
