Edwards judge again meets privately with attorneys
GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — The judge in John Edwards’ campaign corruption trial has again closed the courtroom to talk to attorneys about the jury.
US District Judge Catherine C. Eagles was meeting with the lawyers Wednesday, the eighth day of jury deliberations. The judge has received a note from a juror, but she has not talked about its contents. She also gave no reason why she was closing the courtroom.
The jury’s behavior has garnered attention, in part because the four alternate jurors have at times worn the same color shirts.
The former presidential candidate faces six charges involving nearly $1 million provided by two wealthy donors to help hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008.
