Courthouse preparing for second night of sequestering the Cutts Jury

3:54 p.m. The courthouse staff just told the media throngs that there is "absolutley nothing to report."

Jurors haven't asked any questions ... and haven't made any noise at all.

While a verdict could still come down late this afternoon, the court is now making preparations for jurors to spend a second night in a local hotel. They're expected to deliberate until 5:30 or 6 p.m. and that's it tonight.

I've heard some legal "experts" argue that the longer jurors deliberate, the more it favors the defendant. If the jury is indeed kept a second night, just watch and see if the national "experts" don't make the same leap. I argue that we don't know anything. Those jurors have a lot to weigh .. and really should make sure that they're sure before coming out.

My competitors are heading outside for their 4 p.m. liveshots ... but as for Chris Tye and me, the
wait continues ....
