Mistrial

Diane Dimond, former Court TV reporter on Michael Jackson's recent molestation trial, has just published a book "Be Careful Who You Love" in which she says that the trial should have been abandoned as a mistrial.

Dimond alleges that a juror, Elanor Cook, signed a book deal before the verdict had been decided. This is illegal under Californian law, until 90 days after the trial ends.

Dimond also alleges that Cook was close friends with a maid at Jackson's Neverland ranch, and gave her legal advice ahead of her prosecution testimony.
