Our reporter Doug Donovan is sending updates from the coutroom throughout the corruption trial of Mayor Sheila Dixon.
Still no verdict, but legal wrangling broke the monotony of a fifth day of jury deliberations. Dixon's defense asked for a mistrial, arguing that the jury is clearly confused. The judge denied the motion. Now jurors want to review video playback of some testimony, which will take place in closed court this afternoon.
The media remains transfixed on the trial, whose jury deliberations are lasting nearly as long as the trial itself. TV reporters have set up practical news bureaus on the curb outside of the Calvert Street courthouse. Print reporters are phoning and texting updates to their newsrooms. For a sampling:
The Sun provides the most comprehensive coverage with easy links to stories dating back to 2006, when the Maryland State Prosecutor's investigation began.
WBAL is providing minute-by-minute tweets on the action (or inaction), plus links to longer takes from Jayne Miller and Dave Collins.
