 R. Kelly’s federal trial in Chicago is on hold.  Officials say the Dirksen Federal Courthouse will be closed today due to an “operational issue.”  The closure will delay proceedings in all jury trials for at least one day, including that of the disgraced R&B singer.  Kelly is on trial for charges related to child pornography and obstruction of justice.
