    It's at the discretion of the federal prosecutors whether to refile and prosecute the case again (new trial).

    From the link to that article (post above this):

    Federal prosecutors now have to decide if they want to seek to retry the case. A status conference is set for Jan. 10.

    With one lone holdout, my guess is that they will go for a new trial.

    Wonder if someone "got to" that juror, like often happens in cases vs. criminal enterprises (mafia, etc). That's how Mafia chieftain John Gotti walked away from several major federal criminal prosecutions.

    For offended Scientologists reading this blasphemy about L. Ron Hubbard---my apologies for talking about real life without lying to you, like Scientology, with goo-goo theta-talk. I know you don't have a floating needle right now. You're not supposed to.

    Unfortunately 11 jurors voted to acquit, from the LA Times in my previous post:

    "Jurors, who began deliberating late Monday, were split
    11 to 1 in favor of an acquittal."
    The lure of the pseudoscientific vocabulary and promises of dianetics cannot but condemn thousands who are beginning to emerge from scientific illiteracy to a continuation of their susceptibility to word-magic and semantic hash.

    In a related story:

    Former No. 2 in L.A. Sheriff's office surrenders to prison to serve 5-year sentence

    Former Los Angeles County Undersheriff Paul Tanaka surrendered Monday to federal authorities in Colorado to begin serving a five-year prison sentence for conspiracy and obstructing an FBI investigation into deputy jail abuses.Tanaka, who as the second-in-command ran day-to-day operations of the largest sheriff’s department in the nation, began serving his term at a minimum-security camp in Englewood, Colo., said his lawyer, H. Dean Steward.
    “Paul is a very stoic guy, and he continues in that vein throughout all of this,” Steward said.

    "You should not get the subject of individual improvement and religious experience confused with the social activity of large groups grinding up against each other. It is not worth your time. The groups come and go. The individuals don't. There have been many groups and civilizations, and there will be many more of them, but a decent individual is a relatively permanent thing." - Geoffrey C. Filbert 1982
