U.S. District Judge Joan Lenard notes that the man may be called as a witness in the
retrial of his six former co-defendants.
Lenard also says the identities of the jury to be chosen next month for the second
trial will be kept secret from prosecutors, defense lawyers and the public because of
improper contacts and leaks in the first trial. The mother of one defendant was given a
list with "X" marks next to the names of six jurors.
The retrial is set to begin January seventh for six men accused of plotting with
al-Qaida to destroy Chicago's Sears Tower and bomb FBI offices. The first trial ended in a
hung jury for those six and an acquittal on all charges for Lyglenson Lemorin, a legal
U.S. resident from Haiti.
