Blagojevich trial: Morning hearing canceled, jury back for day 4
The Blagojevich jury is back for their fourth day of deliberations on the 25th floor of the Dirksen Federal Building.
Shortly after jurors gathered in the jury room — which is separated from the rest of the building by a frosted-glass, locked set of double doors — the attorneys and several dozen reporters gathered outside the courtroom for the trial’s daily 9:30 hearing.
But the courtroom was dark inside and the doors were locked. A half-hour later, that was still the case.
Finally, Judge James Zagel’s deputy announced in the hall that there was no business to conduct, and lawyers and media alike were free to go.

Blagojevich jury’s second question: Can we have transcripts of ALL the testimony? Day 3
on July 30, 2010 10:46 AM
On their third day of deliberations, jurors in Rod Blagojevich’s corruption trial gave a sign that they’re in this for the long-haul.Their request this morning: a transcript of all testimony for the seven weeks of trial.
“Is it permissible to obtain a transcript of the testimony. It would be helpful,” the note read.
And the answer to that question is no.
However, U.S. District Judge James Zagel said, with agreement by the lawyers, he will respond by telling the jurors that the testimony of certain witnesses would be considered.
Zagel noted that if (and when) that requests comes, it will take time to prepare the transcripts.
