The closing arguments in the federal fraud and racketeering trial of Chicago broker Michael Segal are scheduled to be held today in the U.S. District Court of Northern Illinois. They were originally scheduled for last Thursday but were delayed by scheduling conflicts and the court’s closing in honor of President Reagan.
