Franken's lawyers say they will rest case Wednesday

itemprop

One step closer to the end: Al Franken's lawyers said they will rest their case Wednesday after presenting a series of witnesses to support their position.

But we're not done yet. We know Norm Coleman has to have some tricks up his sleeve.

More from the Star Tribune:
Attorney Marc Elias told reporters that the Franken team believes it has called enough witnesses and submitted enough documents to prove the validity of the rejected absentee ballots they hope to count.

"We think that after seven weeks of trial we are in a position to rest," Elias said.

Coleman is trailing by 225 votes and is challenging the election results in front of a three-judge panel. His legal team rested their case last week, but they will likely have rebuttal evidence after Franken finishes up.
