Rod Blagojevich's Lawyers to Petition Supreme Court to Delay Trial
Attorneys for ousted Illinois Gov.
Rod Blagojevich say they're definitely heading to the U.S. Supreme Court in an effort to delay his corruption trial.
Defense attorney Sam Adam told reporters Monday that he plans to file such a request on Tuesday.
Adam says Blagojevich's attorneys aren't expecting a hearing before the high court. He says they just want a temporary order to delay the trial until the high court rules on the constitutionality of the federal law that bars officials from depriving taxpayers of honest services. That ruling is expected in June.
