Blagojevich Case up for Court Hearing - FOX 32 News Chicago

Blagojevich Case up for Court Hearing


Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's racketeering and fraud case is due up for a hearing in federal court. Blagojevich himself isn't expected to be on hand and fireworks aren't expected at the hearing Wednesday before U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel.

But the hearing will give attorneys a chance to air any concerns and take care of any housekeeping chores. The impeached governor's friend and former chief of staff, Alonzo Monk, was scheduled to plead guilty to corruption charges in the case earlier this week.

But that plan ran into a snag and the plea was postponed until Aug. 11.
