After deliberating for 19 days, the jury in United States v. Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, et al . told the judge that 11 out of 12 of them had determined that further deliberations would not lead to unanimity among the panel members. As a result, Chief U.S. District Judge A. Joe Fish declared a mistrial.
First Assistant to the U.S. Attorney of the Northern District of Texas Jim Jacks told the judge that the prosection planned to retry the case. The judge, who is shifting to senior status this month, said he would not preside over a retrial but rather would let another judge take it over.
