Blagojevich Trial Judge James Zagel Has His Own Interesting Story

The Blagojevich trial will be filled with lots of colorful characters and the person responsible for keeping them all in line is federal court judge James Zagel. He too is a bit of a character. Zagel's acted in movies and wrote a crime novel called Money to Burn. Alison Cuddy recently talked to WBEZ's criminal justice reporter Robert Wildeboer about what the judge's past interests might say about his handling of the case.
