Day five of jury deliberations: Lawyers summoned to court

Reporting with Natasha Korecki

On the fifth day of jury deliberations, lawyers and prosecutors in Rod Blagojevich's retrial were summoned to court for an unknown reason.

They're currently in Judge James Zagel's chambers.

It's possible the jury is asking to deliberate Friday after all -- despite originally scheduling to meet for deliberations from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

The jury has sent one note to Zagel so far regarding a transcript discrepancy.

More to come.
