Judge Declares Mistrial in Gotti Case
NEW YORK - Gambino crime family scion John A. "Junior" Gotti dodged a legal bullet for the second time in eight months Friday when a federal jury deadlocked on racketeering charges against him, leading to a mistrial.

U.S. District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin excused the jury after they said they were at an impasse despite less than two full days of deliberations. Prosecutors quickly said they intended to try Gotti, 42, for a third time.

The mistrial came after jurors sent out a note that further deliberations would be fruitless. "We are completely DEADLOCKED," the note said. "More time will not change the views in this room."

The political angle here is that WABC's Curtis Sliwa is so fixated on this case (fair enough; it involves him being abducted and shot) he won't be talking politics on his show anytime soon...
