The third trial of Harold “Hal” Turner, the Internet-radio host charged with threatening to kill three Chicago appeals court judges, is expected to go to the jury as early as this afternoon.

With only one witness to go, the two-day trial has been markedly more civil than his earlier trials, in which Turner’s defense attorneys attempted to debate fine points of constitutional law with the three allegedly threatened judges, who each took the stand as witnesses for the prosecution: Judges Richard Posner, William Bauer and Frank Easterbrook of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The earlier trials ended in hung juries.
