Platinum Meritorious Sponsor with bells on
Does that mean the whole lawsuit cannot be repeated at all (like when, for example, firing your attorneys "without reason" at a certain point ... ) and sleazebaca stays free due to what might be called a procedural defect or a technicality, or does this mean the lawsuit can or will be filed again? :confused2:
It's at the discretion of the federal prosecutors whether to refile and prosecute the case again (new trial).
From the link to that article (post above this):
Federal prosecutors now have to decide if they want to seek to retry the case. A status conference is set for Jan. 10.
With one lone holdout, my guess is that they will go for a new trial.
Wonder if someone "got to" that juror, like often happens in cases vs. criminal enterprises (mafia, etc). That's how Mafia chieftain John Gotti walked away from several major federal criminal prosecutions.
