Rod Blagojevich's Lawyers Ask for a One Week Delay in the Trial

The Constitution guarantees Rod Blagojevich the right to a speedy trial, but on Monday his lawyers complained it was getting way too speedy.

Blagojevich's lawyers sought to delay the federal corruption trial for at least a week to prepare witnesses for a defense case that they had believed they wouldn't be presenting until late August at the earliest.

Estimates of a sprawling trial that would last well into the fall have evaporated as the government has streamlined its case.
