Looks like the jury is intent on wrapping this up by week's end.
Judge Amy St. Eve just read a note that was left May 21st from the jury.
In it, jurors asked to leave at noon today to accommodate a job interview for one of the jurors.
But they indicated they will stay an hour and a half later Wednesday and Thursday to: "help conclude our decision." They will stay until 5:50 p.m. the next two days, the timing was set to help jurors make the train.
Some reporters were unimpressed by the note, one television reporter hurried out of the courtroom bench saying :"Excuse me. I gotta go blow this out of proportion."
Another TV reporter joked: "I took a shower for this?"
Though defense lawyers already knew the content of the note (it was read in a conference call to the parties six days ago) Tony Rezko appeared in court with his lawyers. He was dressed in a suit and uttered a soft "good morning," as he stood in the hallway with his lawyers.
