Jury deliberations were under way Thursday in the federal contract bid-rigging case against Detroit’s Bobby Ferguson.
Ferguson is charged with fraud, money laundering and obstruction of justice. He's accused of obtaining millions of dollars in public works contracts through false statements and bid collusion.
He's also accused of making false statements in a proposal as part of the Garden View Estates project, a public housing development in Detroit.
Deliberations began Friday. One juror fell ill Tuesday.
The juror who fell ill was evaluated by a doctor who deemed him unfit to continue because of a heart issue.
An alternate juror was seated as a replacement.

A witness testified last Friday that Ferguson asked him to take responsibility for a gun that was seized from Ferguson's office during a raid by agents in 2009. As a former felon, he can't possess firearms.
Three other people charged with Ferguson have pleaded guilty and will testify against him.
Ferguson faces a separate trial in September with Kilpatrick and Kilpatrick's father, Bernard.
