Verdict in Death Penalty Case

I don't often blog about my job...
You: The Litvak, this blog is only three days old!
The Litvak: Shut up, You.
...but thought this was exciting enough to chronicle, and I won't be betraying any non-public information by revealing it (I'm waiting for news coverage to link to before I publish this).
This year I'm working as a clerk to a federal judge in Manhattan, and the jury in our death penalty case _just_ came back with a verdict.
The indictment had fifteen counts, and they found the defendants guilty on fourteen of them.
The government is seeking the death penalty on several of the counts-- Monday we'll start the penalty phase.
