After 9 days of deliberation, the Chicago federal ┬ájurors in the retrial of Rod Blagojevich went home Thursday at the end of the day. They won’t t be back til Monday morning, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The paper also reported that it appeared that U.S. District Judge James Zagel had imposed a gag order. However, the paper reported that no one would comment on that (now that’s a real gag order).

The paper reported that there had been a series of sealed court filings in the case after Sam Adam Jr., a defense attorney in the first case, appeared on radio TV last week and predicted an acquital on all 20 counts.
