MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
Judge Myron Thompson Tuesday updated the court on the situation involving a court reporter who had to be replaced Monday because it appeared the man fell asleep. In fact, the reporter passed out due to a "diabetic episode" according to the judge.
Thompson said the court reporter's medical condition was known to him and normally the reporter would get his attention if he was having an issue. That way the judge could call for a short recess.
The judge said the reporter, who acts as the official record keeper of testimony during the trial, passed out while on the job.
The trial was put in recess for a short time while officials worked to find another reporter.
Meanwhile, the reporter who passed out was sent to see a doctor. Judge Thompson said the man should be ok and will possibly rejoin the trial by mid-week.
After the trial resumed, Ronnie Gilley continued with his third day on the stand where he testified against other defendants in the corruption trial.
The trial is now in its fourth week at the federal courthouse in downtown Montgomery.
