Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich departs the Federal Court building holding a dummy newspaper page given to him after not testifying in his federal corruption trial Tuesday in Chicago.
CHICAGO (AP) -- Defense attorneys say they've been told Judge James Zagel will read a note at about 2 p.m. with a question from jurors.
A one-line statement from the court clerk's office says only that there's a hearing.
Jurors are in their eleventh day of trying to reach a verdict.
Since they began deliberations, they've only sent two notes to the judge. The last was sent on their third day of deliberations. That's made it hard to glean how discussions are going.
Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to 24 counts, including charges of trying to sell or trade an appointment to President Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat.
