Blagojevich trial, May 7, 2010, Judge limits defense arguments

From The Chicago Tribune.

“Judge limits defense arguments at Blagojevich trial”

“The judge overseeing the corruption case against former Gov. Rod Blagojevich on Thursday granted prosecutors’ request to limit what the ex-governor’s defense team can argue in front of the jury at the trial that begins next month.

An entry on the court docket in the case indicates U.S. District Judge James Zagel had granted the request made by the prosecution in April.

Prosecutors had asked the judge to block the argument by the defense that it should be able to play all the undercover recordings made of Blagojevich in the fall of 2008 — something the ex-governor has repeated publicly multiple times.”
