Last-Ditch Bid to Delay Blago Trial

The lawyers want the trial postponed until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on challenges to a federal law that law bars officials from denying taxpayers their honest services. The high court is expected to rule on the issue by the end of June. The judge on the case has already denied the request to delay the start.

Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to scheming to sell or trade president Obama’s former senate seat.
