    Gov. Rod Blagojevich's lead attorney said Friday that he plans to resign from the impeached governor's criminal case after B-Rod refuses to listen

    CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Rod Blagojevich's lead attorney said Friday that he plans to resign from the impeached governor's criminal case.

    ``I have practiced law for 44 years. I never require a client to do what I say, but I do require clients to listen to what I say,'' Genson told reporters. ``I intend to withdraw as counsel in this case.''

    Genson is one of Chicago's best known lawyers whose clients include R&B star R. Kelly and Canadian-born press lord Conrad Black.

    To be official, his resignation as Blagojevich's attorney must take place in court. When asked when he planned to do so, Genson smiled and left.

    Genson's announcement 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.

    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.

    He said after Blagojevich's impeachment in the House that the Senate trial's outcome is a ``foregone conclusion.''

    Very interesting.....you don't often see the rats desert a sinking ship in such a public way. Smells like blood in the water in Chicago, kids.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    Even rats know when to abandon a sinking ship.
