Somehow, I missed this story last night; fortunately, Richard Masoner at Cyclelicious seldom seems to miss anything.
He sends word that the trial of Jose Louis Huerta Mundo, charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter in the July death of cyclist Michael Nine in Newport Beach, has ended in a hung jury. According the Daily Pilot, there’s no word on how the jury broke down in in favor or against conviction.
However, the courts aren’t wasting any time; a new trial is set to begin on Tuesday, November 23rd.
The breakdown was undoubtedly 9-3 in favor of guilt. If it was 9-3 in favor of acquittal, the judge would most likely not have allowed the trial to be reset and the case would have been dismissed.

Thanks Jim, they should all work now. I think WordPress had a little hiccup over the weekend.
