The Sue Schmitz jury deadlocks

The law office I first clerked with had some Charles Bragg on the walls. I continue to enjoy his work. A brief "I told you so" might not be too poor form and even if so I'm unable to resist. I'll also share my Dad's quote of "Two mistrials is as good as an acquittal" while wondering if I'll ever step inside the Bar again. The Huntsville Times reports Mistrial declared in Schmitz fraud case. I'm hoping to learn more about how the jury deliberated and I for one would think it best to know some of that information before promising to take this one to trial again. Then again, the manner of Ms. Schmitz' arrest indicated this was at least somewhat about politics rather than purely the pursuit of justice. John Gunn
