Not yet! First a closed hearing.
A “juror issue.”
Jury selection was about to be completed with lawyers exercising the final challenges so 12 alternate jurors could join the 12 regular jurors who had already been selected. Instead, the rest of the day was taken up with meetings between Judge Ito and lawyers about concerns that were raised about some of the jurors who had already been seated as regular jurors.
