CHICAGO (AP) -- Attorneys for ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich are headed back to court to show the judge their starting lineup.

Blagojevich was arrested more than five months ago and it still isn't totally clear exactly who will be on his legal defense team.

U.S. District Judge James Zagel scheduled a Monday hearing for attorneys to tell him something definite.

In the last two weeks, two attorneys - Sheldon Sorosky and Samuel Adam - have put the court on notice they plan to be at the defense table for trial. But there's nothing final on who will join them or even how many lawyers will be on the team.

Blagojevich is accused - among other things - of scheming to sell President Barack Obama's former U.S. Senate seat. He's denied any wrongdoing.
