Rod Blagojevich's trial will not happen Monday and Tuesday of next week, afterall. The defense had flagged that the witnesses they want to call are people of "some prominence" and faced scheduling issues.
Initially, Judge James Zagel told the defense to get going Monday anyway.
That apparently changed today.
The Clerk of Court just issued this statement: No trial will be held in the Blagojevich matter on Monday and Tuesday, May 23 and 24. Trial will resume on Wednesday, May 25 at 9:30 a.m.
