A last ditch effort by former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's lawyers to delay his retrial on corruption charges has been rejected by U.S. District Judge James Zagel. The trial will begin as currently scheduled next week. Blagojevich's camp said that they did not have time to prepare for a retrial because they had to address pre-trial motions. Zagel rejected that argument, saying that the prosecution's case has been streamlined and that there is "virtually nothing new" for the defense to prepare for.
