>>> right now the jury in the john edwards case are meeting in closed quarters. gabe, what do we know? what can you tell us about what's going on?
>> greg, good afternoon. there appeared to be some confusion within the past hour or so as the judge told reporters assembled inside the courtroom to go outside of the courtroom, saying that she had a jury matter to attend to and that she preferred to do it in proo private. we did not know what that jury matter was. it could have been anything from a scheduling conflict next week to something more substantial. the jury is still waiting to go back into the courtroom, so we're still waiting to hear exactly what that jury matter was. up until now, it's been pretty unevent ful. six days of deliberations and we've heard no questions from the jury today. maybe because they have all the 503 exhibits that were presented throughout the trial. the jurors had gone to the judge yesterday and asked for 20 exhibits, most of them having to do with fred baron , the wealthy donor who gave to john edwards . the judge turned around and said, wouldn't it be easier if i just gave you all the exhibits? and that's exactly what happened. a lot of speculation about what exactly is going on inside that courtroom. john edwards faces six felony counts and it appears that the jurors are weighing all this carefully, and this could drag on into next week. again, we're waiting to see the latest development and whether we'll be able to go home for the holiday weekend.
>> it sounds like this thing will go on a little further. thanks very much. appreciate
