Judge gives U.S. more time to decide on retrying Manafort on deadlocked charges

Judge gives U.S. more time to decide on retrying Manafort on deadlocked chargesU.S. prosecutors have more time to decide whether to retry former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on 10 criminal charges that a jury deadlocked on last week, a judge ordered on Thursday. U.S. District Judge T. S. Ellis delayed the deadline for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to make the decision until one week after Ellis rules on any post-trial motions that Manafort may submit. The original deadline had been Wednesday, which prosecutors said would be difficult to meet because Manafort’s lawyers had requested a 30-day extension to file their post-trial motions.
