Juror Out in Libby Trial But Deliberations to Continue


One juror in the perjury trial of former vice presidential aide Lewis “Scooter” Libby was dismissed on Monday after she told the judge she had been exposed to information about the case outside of court.

Judge Reggie Walton said the jury would continue to deliberate with 11 members.

“It’s imperative that you not have any contact with any information regarding this case from any source outside this courtroom,” Walton told the 11 remaining jurors.

Had an alternate been called to replace the dismissed juror, the jury would have had to begin its deliberations anew. The jury, which consisted of eight women and four men, has been deliberating since last Wednesday.
