What a funny way to mistrial

Here in New England one of the news stories is the law-suit that Charlie Weis has brought against the doctors who performed his gastic bypass surgery. The reason it's headline news is that Charlie Weis is the N.E. Patriots former Offensive Coordinator - helping to turn our team into a dynasty. So of course we all know and love him. We also all watched him lose weight very rapidly after the surgery.

What we all didn't know is that he nearly died after the surgery and that is what he is sueing about. Weis is claiming that the doctors didn't recognize life-threatening internal bleeding and infection after his surgery. Gastric bypass is a dangerous surgery and all patients have to sign off on the possiblility of injury/death. So, I am reluctant to believe Charlie Weis unless sufficient evidence is presented.

Anyway, the trial was kind of a big deal because our hometown hero, quarterback Tom Brady, even testified.

But yesterday, (this is crazy), one of the elderly jurors collapsed, was moaning for help, and the doctors on trial came to his rescue!!! The other jurors were escorted out, the man left in an ambulance and a mistrial was called. Could the doctors have asked for a more perfect scenerio? -Except for the mistrial part.

Very strange.
