Moments after the prosecution rested, Tony Rezko waived his right to testify.
Then Rezko's lawyers disclosed they've taken on a strategy of putting up no separate defense case, indicating they won't call any of their own witnesses.
The move isn't a complete surprise.
Last week, Rezko's lawyers hinted their defense case, if any, would be short -- possibly wrapping up in an afternoon. Defense lawyers often say the bulk of their defense comes out through cross examination.
The defense filed three motions to throw out particular charges against Rezko -- including a motion saying the government hasn't proven its case.
Judge Amy St. Eve, who said she would take the motions under advisement, told jurors that lawyers will "finish the evidentiary portion of the case when you come back at 12:15." She then told them they will have a week off, to return Monday for closing arguments.
The jury will return as the defense enters documents into evidence.
Will it offer any interesting written, stipulated testimony? We'll see in a few minutes.
