Defense lawyers in the City Hall corruption trial will rest as early as Wednesday, much earlier than expected, according to U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds.

Closing arguments could come Monday, according to a tentative schedule released today.

It is unclear if Kwame Kilpatrick, his father Bernard or Bobby Ferguson will testify by Wednesday.
