Gov. Rod Blagojevich's lead attorney says he plans to resign from his criminal case.
Genson's decision Friday comes one day after Blagojevich's defense team sent mixed signals over whether the governor would file a lawsuit to block his impeachment trial in the state Senate.
Saying today the governor has not taken his advice, Genson said, "I wish the governor good luck and Godspeed."
Defense attorney Samuel E. Adam told The Associated Press Thursday that a lawsuit could be filed with the Illinois Supreme Court within days, pending a final decision. But Genson told the Chicago Tribune no lawsuit would be filed.
