Blagojevich Lawyers: Restart Jury Selection

In court papers filed late Tuesday, the lawyers say jury selection for the trial that's scheduled to begin June 3 should be restarted.

No questioning of potential jurors has begun. But attorneys for the former governor and his brother say they understand about 300 of the 400 possible jurors contacted by the court have already been dismissed by the judge.

Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to scheming to sell or trade President Barack Obama's former Senate seat and other charges.
