UPDATE: Jury says they're deadlocked; will come back Tuesday

NEWARK -- Seven of the 16 jurors and alternates in the trial of U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez raised their hands when U.S. District Judge William Walls on Monday morning asked whether they'd heard or read anything about the case, prompting the judge to take them into his chambers individually to get more details.

The inquiry came after defense attorneys in the trial noted that widespread news coverage of an excused juror's public statements may have tainted the remaining members of the panel.

"Widespread coverage"?  Really?   Certainly not in the national news.
Now is the time to "hold his feet to the fire".
