Tracking the Blagojevich Case

June 8, 2010

Opening statements in the corruption trial of erstwhile Illinois governor and reality TV star Rod Blagojevich are scheduled for this week in Chicago.  Mr. Blagojevich is accused of, among other things, attempting to “sell” an appointment to the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President Obama.

The docket for the case is available on Westlaw via the following search in the Northern District of Illinois Dockets database (DOCK-IL-NDCT):  DEF(BLAGOJEVICH) & CTP(CRIMINAL).

After looking at the docket, you can keep up with any new filings by clicking the “Track this Docket” link available at the top of the docket.  This tool enables you to receive a notification (e.g., via email) each time a new filing is added to the docket.
