Andersen "Guilty or Not Guilty"
Is the latest ruling by Judge Harmon enough to "unhang" the jury?

"(AP) - The judge in the Arthur Andersen LLP obstruction of justice trial ruled Friday that jurors do not have to agree on who committed the crime as long as each of them believes somebody did."

Andersens legal teams says "But Andersen's legal team argued jurors must unanimously agree the same person intended to subvert the SEC, and they could not pick and choose among different Andersen partners or employees."

Seems like a weak defense to me! Tongue
