In a serious defeat for federal prosecutors, the second trial of blogger Harold Turner, the New Jersey white supremacist charged with threatening to kill three 7th Circuit judges, has resulted in a second mistrial. At the end of their second full day of deliberations Wednesday, the jurors said another day of deliberations would be useless, the third time they reported that they believed a unanimous verdict was impossible. Prosecutors will now have to decide whether to ask the 7th Circuit judges to appear for a third trial.
