Libby: No Verdict, Day Seven

Update: Keep reading the tea leaves. No verdict today and the jury is leaving early tomorrow. Marcy at Firedoglake has the recap.


We're in day seven of the Scooter Libby jury deliberations. Jane and Marcy of Firedoglake are live-blogging any news.

Tidbit for today: The jurors asked for another large easel pad yesterday, signifying nothing. Maybe more important - the jurors are in jeans again.

I think the jurors will dress up on verdict day. I have no scientific or anecdotal evidence to back that up, only a memory that it happened in some other high-profile trial within the past few years. I can't even remember now which one.

Please use the comments to update with trial news as I'll be off-line for several hours (although checking in every ten minutes by Treo.) I'll have my laptop with me to get back online if there's a verdict. Feel free to e-mail me if you learn it before reading it here.

    What the hell is that in the picture? Is that a dime bag? I dont follow Scooter Libby snooze nooze but I know it's taking a long time. Do you think that's why the trial is lasting so long? Too many dime bags for the judge?

    no, it's a tea bag (none / 0) (#2)

    before I realized it was a tea bag.

    No wonder they used to call it tea.
