The text of a note from the jury foreman in the corruption trial of Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) to U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan:
"We the jury request that juror #9 be removed from the jury. She is being rude, disrespectful and unreasonable. She has had violent outbursts with other jurors and is not helping anyone.
The jurors are getting off course. She is not following the laws and rules that were stipuated in the instructions."
