Courthouse ‘abuzz’ over Libby jurors’ ‘mystery note.’

“The federal courthouse near the U.S. Capitol is abuzz this morning, with everyone speculating about the contents of a mystery note jurors in the Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby trial sent to Judge Reggie Walton as they suspended deliberations yesterday afternoon. In a note to lawyers for both sides, Walton said the jurors had a ‘question’ that he would address in court at 9:30 a.m. today. Willing says speculation is rampant, with observers wondering whether the question is about the law, the testimony or the evidence. As one U.S. marshal suggested, the question could also be along the lines of ‘What do we do if we can’t come to a verdict?’”
