Judge calls mistrial in U. Iowa liberal bias trial
DAVENPORT (AP) — A judge declared a mistrial Wednesday in the case of a conservative scholar who claims she was passed over for jobs at the University of Iowa law school because of liberal bias.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas Shields called the mistrial in the case of Teresa Wagner after jurors reported they remained hopelessly deadlocked after three days of deliberations. Shields told jurors the move means the case will have to be retried or resolved some other way, such as a settlement.
"We'll fight another day," Wagner's lawyer, Stephen Fieweger, said afterward. "This is not over."
