Jury fails to grasp the basics
The Guardian, Wednesday 20 February 2013
Vicky Pryce faces retrial after jury ‘fails to grasp basics’. Judge dismisses jury in case of Chris Huhne’s ex-wife, saying panel suffered ‘fundamental deficits in understanding’. Mr Justice Sweeney discharged the panel of eight women and four men following more than 15 hours of deliberations, and a day after they submitted 10 questions that indicated they had not grasped the basics of their task.
