References to Pork, Jesus Lead to Retrial

01/11/2011

(JTA) -- References to the trial of Jesus and a pork comment made by a defense lawyer for Cisco Systems during a federal trial have led a judge to grant a new trial.

Jurors in Marshall, Texas, last May awarded Commil USA more than $3.7 million in patent infringement damages, though the company asked for $57 million.

Commil charged in a motion for a new trial that the remarks and allusions to the trial of Jesus Christ prejudiced the jury in the case, The American Lawyer reported.
