Emma Schwartz has the write-up here:

    FROM THE COURTHOUSE: “I say, there’s a lot of people here for such a small note,” defense attorney Ted Wells said to special prosecutor Pat Fitzgerald in federal court this morning. He was referring to the more than 50-person crowd of reporters and lawyers who had gathered in the hallway of the D.C. federal courthouse while waiting for Judge Reggie Walton’s courtroom to open. They were there to hear about the latest jury note.

    The faces in the crowd were largely familiar to anyone who sat through the four-week long trial, except for one: Hardball’s Chris Matthews. Matthews’ name had come up repeatedly during trial for his comments in July 2003 that incited Scooter’s ire. Libby attempted to avoid eye contact when he passed Matthews in the hallway, which was caught by a courtroom sketch artist.
