Oracle v. Google - Jury Still Out; Judge Anticipating Inability of Jury to Decide Some Questions of Fact ~mw
Friday, May 04 2012 @ 12:08 PM EDT

According to reports emanating from the courtroom, Judge Alsup has raised the likelihood that they jury will be unable to return a unanimous decision on each of the questions posed. The Judge elicited the response of counsel to this possibility (Oracle - take what you can get; Google - declare a mistrial unless all issues decided). It appears the judge is more inclined to accept a partial verdict, i.e., accept the jury's findings on those questions for which the jury was in unanimity, decide what he can, and then retry the issues for which the jury is hung. Of course, we will not know how close or far away the jury is until it returns, and there is always the possibility, where the jury has not decided all of the issues unanimously, that the judge will not announce what issues have been decided. Stand by for more.
