“Mistrial”

“A mistrial was declared Monday after a jury could not decide whether to award damages to four firefighters who claimed they were sexually harassed after being forced to participate in a gay pride parade last year. The jury deliberated nearly four days before announcing a deadlock on the first of several criteria needed to find the city liable. Charles LiMandri, the firefighters’ attorney, called the mistrial “extremely frustrating.” A new trial was set for January.” [AP]
