Edwards juror issue arises; case stops for weekend

Juror issue arises in John Edwards deliberations; panel dismissed for the weekend By The Associated Press

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) ' The judge in the John Edwards trial says she is dealing with a juror issue and she is warning the panel not to deliberate outside the jury room or in small groups.

U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Eagles closed the courtroom to reporters Friday afternoon for about 35 minutes to talk to attorneys about a jury matter. When she reopened the courtroom, she said she would possibly take up the same "juror issue" Tuesday.

No other information was given.



She warned the jury not to discuss the case and dismissed the panel until Tuesday after its sixth day of deliberations.

Prosecutors say Edwards spearheaded a plan to use money from two wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
