In the graft trial against former Illinois Governor Ryan,the jury has deliberated for eight days without a resolution and two jurors were just removed
for making false statements in their jury questionaire. To remove jurors so late in the deliberations will certainly create grounds for an appeal should the case continue and the panel vote for a conviction.
As the LA Times did
in its report of the Holy Land classified document slip up and the Washington Post
did in its report of the early dismissal of the Cowles case, the NYT neglects to mention the name of the Prosecutor. It is Patrick Fitzgerald in all three cases.
