Moussaoui Jurors Recess for Weekend, No Verdict

The jurors have recessed for the weekend. There's no verdict and there were no questions today. They've only been deliberating 12.5 hours total, so this is not unusual.

Update: I am still not finding the final jury instructions. The Court's website has only those proposed by both sides, and objections each filed to the other's submissions.

Even if the instructions were delivered orally by the Judge, you would think at least one news outlet who purchased the trial transcripts from Exemplaris would post them on their website. If any reporters out there have the transcript of closing arguments and jury instructions, please don't hesitate to e-mail them to me.

    I believe that the protocol is for the judge to file the jury instruction after they are read. Sometimes, they contain mishmash of little edits and such because the judge adds and deletes from the document. Other times, they are fully prepared on a word processor after they are hammered out. In any case, they should be file. Perhaps they don't get filed until the verdict?
