Thursday, February 8, the Court-Martial of First Lt. Ehren Watada (see previous blog for details) ended in a mistrial. The judge, Lt. Col. John Head, declared the mistrial after confusion arose regarding pre-trial "stipulation of facts," signed by both the prosecution and Lt. Watada.
Watada's civilian attorney, Eric Seitz, believes that the officer cannot be re-tried due to the Constitution's protection against double jeopardy. However, a new trial has been scheduled for March 19.
