U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel
During as post-trial hearing Friday, a juror in the trial of convicted powerbroker William Cellini stormed out of court, yelling, “Leave me alone!”
A federal judge angrily scolded a bid by attorneys for former Gov. Rod Blagojevich to get a new trial, calling their motion alleging potential misconduct by the jury forewoman “hare-brained.”
A federal judge has ordered the Chicago Tribune to turn over notes and recordings in a fight over a juror who didn’t disclose her criminal record in the trial of convicted Illinois powerbroker William Cellini.
In a move that was fully expected, deposed Gov. Rod Blagojevich is filing an appeal to overturn his conviction on corruption charges.
If you’ve been following what news there is about the Blagojevich trial, you must be thinking by now that Blago is going down. Walter Jacobson is thinking that because of how unfair the judge seems to be.
Jurors in the corruption retrial of Rod Blagojevich on Tuesday heard the secretly recorded phone conversation in which the former governor calls the U.S. Senate set he is accused of trying to sell “f***ing golden.”
After five days of questioning more than 100 potential jurors, the judge in the corruption retrial of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich said Thursday that there are enough qualified candidates to take the final step of seating a jury on Monday.
The judge in the retrial of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich said Tuesday that it appears opening statements could begin on Monday, while attorneys wrap up jury selection this week.
As former Gov. Rod Blagojevich sat through the second day of jury selection for his retrial on federal corruption charges, many prospective jurors were expressing concern that serving on an extended trial could cost them their jobs, or in some cases, their homes.
Deposed Gov. Rod Blagojevich took another chance to proclaim his innocence Thursday morning, as he headed to court for jury selection in his retrial.
In stark contrast to the first trial, the first day of former Rod. Blagojevich’s retrial started quietly on Wednesday at the Dirksen Federal Building, with all of the action taking place behind closed doors.
Federal prosecutors accused Rod Blagojevich of “out-and-out fabrications” in recent media interviews, prompting the judge to advise the former governor “to restrain himself.”
