The Nation

December 18, 1985

Prosecutors in Gov. Edwin W. Edwards racketeering trial in New Orleans asked the judge to provide grand jury and trial testimony of all defendants to the jurors, who reported that they remained deadlocked. "They should not have to rely on their recollection of what was said and what was not said," argued U.S. Atty. John Volz, who pointed out that the trial had lasted almost 13 weeks. Defense attorneys objected to the motion. U.S. District Judge Marcel Livaudais said he would rule today. William Jeffress, arguing for the defense, objected to jurors getting transcripts.
