Well surprise surprise, the Garda asault trial has just collapsed, citing the release of new information which has come to the attention of the ombudsmans office and prosecution. I wonder if they'll see fit to disclose it to the public. I won't be holding my breath in anticipation.

The report says the case has been set for the 10th November,i assume that means a new trial with new Jury Sworn in?.It is rather curious though.

I think it means the trial date had been set for then, but that the jury was discharged prior to the beginning of it.

what does this exactly mean, for those not in the know?

It means the judge feels that the interests of justice would not be served by allowing the trial to continue. He will give more details on November the 10th.

In the meantime, the matter is still sub judice, so any comment or speculation may be prejudicial.

/MOD/ Exactly. I've removed a number of posts from this thread and am temporarily locking it while the Mods discuss if it should be reopened. /MOD/
