The jury in the trial of former Silicon Valley investment banker Frank Quattrone said it remains deadlocked on all three counts of obstruction of justice and witness tampering, raising the chances of a hung jury or mistrial in the four-week-old case.
"It seems significantly unlikely that they will be able to reach a unanimous verdict, because having just reconvened on Wednesday, and to respond so quickly, suggests some jurors' views are fixed firmly," said David Fein, a former federal prosecutor who now is a defense lawyer at Wiggin & Dana LLP.
