Friday marks the ninth day of deliberations for the jury in the sexual abuse trial of members of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Deliberations were running behind schedule today when a juror showed up an hour late. Based on questions the jury has posed, it seems as though they’ve moved their focus to Monsignor William Lynn’s alleged role in the scandal. The lawyers involved in the case appear frustrated—one of them supposedly smashed his Blackberry into a wall earlier this week. They’ve deliberated for more than 30 hours and have had 25 questions or evidence requests, but the judge doesn’t want to push them if they don’t appear deadlocked. [Inquirer]
