US: Texas antitrust case hits roadblock with spying claims

 |  February 13, 2014

A US District Judge has rescheduled jury selection in a Texas antitrust case following allegations of spying on the potential panel, say reports.

US District Judge Kenneth M. Hoyt dismissed 35 potential jurors earlier this week after prosecutor MM Steel filed a complaint with the court accusing defense attorney Emily Miller improperly entered the room of potential jurors last week; the lawyer was also accused of sharing notes with her partner of details of interactions between the potential jurors.
