Blagojevich lawyers to appeal court in Chicago

Lawyers for Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich asked the U.S. Court of Appeals in Chicago to reveal the transcripts of unplayed tapes from Blagojevich's two criminal trials.

Prosecutors filed a motion to maintain the transcripts sealed, but Blagojevich's lawyers appealed the motion and are asking that the tapes be made public. Prosecutors played dozens of tapes during the former governor's trial, but hundreds of tapes were never played. Blagojevich's lawyers filed an appeal arguing that the sealed transcripts portrayed him in a different light.

Blagojevich is currently serving a 14 year sentence at the Federal Penitentiary in Englewood, Colorado.
