The judge in John Edwards' campaign corruption trial says she has received a note from a juror on the eighth day of deliberations.

U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Eagles did not say what the note was about but she met with attorneys behind closed doors as the jury took a lunch break.

The jury's behavior has garnered attention. The four alternate jurors have at times worn the same color shirts. They wore shades of purple and lavender Wednesday. One woman alternate juror had also been smiling at Edwards, but she is no longer making eye contact with him.

The former presidential candidate faces six charges involving nearly $1 million provided by two wealthy donors to help hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008.
