Daily Links Excerpt of the Day
A 12-person federal jury provided a mixed outcome late Wednesday after almost three days of deliberations. Jurors decided that the law school was not guilty of political discrimination, which was the highest-profile allegation in the case. However, the jury was unable to reach a verdict as to whether the school had violated Wagner’s equal protection rights, leading to a mistrial on that count. A third count alleging a violation of Wagner’s due process rights was dismissed prior to being considered by the jury.
