The father and son legal team that represented chatty ex-Ill. Gov. Rod Blagojevich have asked a judge to release them as the lawyers in the case, the Associated Press reports.

A hearing is set for Friday in downtown Chicago  in preparation for the retrial for the for Blagojevich, who was convicted on only one of 24 counts. The jury was deadlocked on the remaining 23.

AP reported that the father and son team of Sam Adam Jr. and Sam Adam Sr. did not specify why they want to be released, but said they want to remain as advisors.

The sequel to Rod Blagojevich’s first public corruption trial could be coming to a federal court room in downtown Chicago as early as January, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The Trib reported that in a private meeting last week between U.S. District Judge James Zagel and lawyers, the judge said he was considering a January date.

Whether Blagojevich has the same attorneys is in question. His legal team of seven lawyers was paid from his $2.7 million campaign fund, which is now totally depleted.

The judge indicated he would appoint Blago two attorneys, which are likely to be paid by taxpayers.

The father and son team of Sam Adam Sr. and Sam Adam Jr. have hinted they may not return for a second act, the Tribune reported.  Blagojevich was convicted last week on one of 24 public corruption counts. The jury deadlocked on the other 23 counts and the judge declared a mistrial on those charges.
