Blagojevich Seeks to Throw Out Corruption Conviction

Rod Blagojevich, the former Illinois governor serving a 14-year prison term for corruption, asked a U.S. appeals court to throw out guilty verdicts rendered by two federal juries.

Leonard Goodman, a lawyer for Blagojevich, today told a three-judge panel in Chicago that “numerous errors” in evidentiary rulings and jury instructions made it impossible for his client to get a fair trial.
