There will be no delay in the trial of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, a federal judge said today.
U.S. District Judge James Zagel said the trial should go forward as planned on June 3.
He called a pending U.S. Supreme Court decision that could redefine a statute that some of Blagojevich’s charges are based on a “red herring.’’
“I don’t see any reason to continue this case,’’ Zagel said. “This is more than a year to acquaint yourselves with the evidence.’’
