News Flash from John Edwards Trial: Color-Coordinated Alternate Jurors Don't Have to Attend
After a month of trial and more than a week of jury deliberation in the political corruption trial of former U.S. Sen. John Edwards, there’s still no sign of a verdict.
But there is one significant new development in the federal case against the former Democratic presidential candidate, reports ABC News: Four alternate jurors who have become known for wearing color-coordinated outfits to the Greensboro, N.C., courtroom in which it is being tried no longer have to attend on a daily basis.
“We will miss your cheerful faces,” U.S. District Court Judge Catherine Eagles told the four on Wednesday. “And we will regret not knowing the color for tomorrow.”
