Closing Arguments Begin in Sandusky Trial

While the Supreme Court issued four more opinions today, none was the much-anticipated health care ruling.

In other high-profile legal news, closing arguments began today in the trial of former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky.  Prior to closing arguments, Judge John Cleland dismissed three charges against Sandusky: two because they were unsupported by evidence, one because it was identical to another charge.  Sandusky now faces 48 charges.

The defense rested yesterday; Sandusky did not take the stand.
