Court rules in Douple Jeopardy, RESPA cases

If the verdict isn’t legit, the jury didn’t acquit.

That was the ruling from the Supreme Court this morning in the case Blueford v. Arizona.  The Court ruled that jurors’ answers to a judge query about deliberations did not amount to an acquittal for Double Jeopardy purposes.

More on that case, as well as today’s RESPA ruling in the case Freeman v. Quicken Loans, Inc. to come on Lawyers USA’s Supreme Court Report.
