Judge in Rod Blagojevich Trial Keeps All But One Count of Honest Services Charges

All the hollering the defense has done with regard to the U.S. Supreme Court taking on the honest services law has fallen flat.

Judge James Zagel today ruled that the high court's recent decision to severely limit the use of the law will have almost no effect on the 24 counts facing Rod Blagojevich.

Blagojevich's lawyers had asked that the entire trial be postponed until the high court ruled on the law, which loosely says that public officials or people in private positions of power can not defraud someone his or her "intangible right to honest services."
