The CDLU was in the courtroom this afternoon. It was empty except for a handful of reporters and other observers.
Soon the defendants, family members, legal teams, and representatives of the U.S. Attorney’s Office arrived. Even U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town was there.
The jury entered. Members of the jury were happy and it appears there is congeniality among the group.
The judge dismissed the jury for the day, speaking to them at eye-level just below and near the witness stand, without a robe.
A veteran ex-prosecutor has told us it may take until Monday before verdicts are reached in that there is over two weeks of testimony for the jury to digest.
Until then, tick-tock, tick-tock.
