WASHINGTON — On Monday, for the second time in less than a week, a federal judge declared a mistrial in a high profile Justice Department case that captured the interest of many nationwide.

A federal judge in Brooklyn declared a mistrial in the case against Hal Turner, a New Jersey shock jock,White Supremacist and ex-FBI informant who was accused of threatening the lives of three federal Chicago judges who ruled in favor of a gun control case, the Associated Press reported.

A re-trial for Turner, 47, was set for March 1 in Brooklyn. The case was indicted in Chicago, but was moved to New York as part of a change of venue request.

The bad news for prosecutors came nearly a week after a mistrial was declared in Manhattan in the racketeering trial of John Gotti Jr. It was his fourth mistrial in five years. The prosecution has not yet announced whether it will go for a fifth trial.

After the mistrial in Turner’s case, one juror, Richard Gardiner, spoke to reporters and said the jury voted 9 to 3 in favor of acquittal, the AP reported.

As in the Gotti trial, the majority of the jurors in the Turner case thought the government case was weak, the juror said.  The lone juror said he favored conviction.
