Working for The Plain Dealer and the publication's web site, cleveland.com, covering the Jimmy Dimora federal racketeering trial in Akron, Ohio. This is the ninth week of the trial. I have posted hourly blog updates as the trial has progressed. On certain days of the week, I give video updates online. Dimora is accused of running a criminal enterprise while serving as a commissioner and chairman of the county Democratic Party. He faces more than 30 counts, including racketeering, under an indictment originally filed in September 2010.
