Jury Deadlocked in Forever 21 Knockoff Case


Yesterday, the jury trying to decide if Forever 21 knowingly knocked off some tops by Trovata told the judge they were deadlocked on reaching a verdict. Apparently the judge received a note informing him of possible misconduct and that one juror was incorrectly applying the law. The judge said the jury has asked for legal clarifications, so maybe they don't even understand what it is they need to decide! Consisting of two women and six men, the jury will attempt to resolve their differences to avoid a mistrial, which would be a horribly anticlimactic end to a potentially landmark case. [WWD]
