Libby trial jury quibbles over flip-chart paper
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The jury in the Scooter Libby trial has asked for a particular type of flip chart paper, after eschewing the kind the government had offered, according to a source on the defense team.
"They want the kind they can stick to the wall," the source told CNN Thursday, holding up an example of the poster-sized paper and sticking it to the marble walls of the hallway between the defense suite and the jury room.
The papers have adhesive in the upper corners similar to Post-It notes. After the jury made the request, both the prosecution and defense came up with such presentation pads, typically arrayed from an easel, flip-chart style.
