Attorneys for Rod Blagojevich say it would take one lawyer more than 51 years to get through all the evidence federal authorities have turned over against the former governor.Court filings show attorneys have received one million pages of documents and 400 hours of tapes. Defense attorneys are asking U.S. district Judge James Zagel to appoint a significant number of attorneys so that the massive amount of discovery can be reviewed.

Blagojevich has been indicted on federal corruption charges.
