CHICAGO (AP) - A federal appeals court in Chicago has rescheduled oral arguments in a terrorism case after courtroom staff failed to record a significant hearing.

The U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a notice on Friday saying it would rehear arguments June 11 in the case against Adel Daoud, who’s accused of trying to set off a bomb near a Chicago bar in 2012.

A court official says staff mistakenly thought they were not supposed to record a hearing Thursday regarding government surveillance methods after seeing federal agents sweep the courtroom for listening devices.

That means there is no official record or transcript of the hearing. Although the court normally records the hearings, it’s not required by law.

The court says that only the public portion of the hearing was affected.
