Greensboro, N.C. • The jury in the John Edwards campaign corruption trial is deliberating for a seventh day after a judge gave the panel a stern warning not to talk about the case over the weekend.
The jurors reconvened Tuesday morning. The judge met in a closed courtroom Friday with attorneys to talk about a problem with a juror, but she did not elaborate.
The judge again met with the attorneys behind closed doors Tuesday, but their discussions were not made public.
Some of the alternate jurors wore matching shirts last week, and one of them was said to be flirting with Edwards.
Edwards faces six charges involving nearly $1 million provided by two wealthy donors to help hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White House.
