Jury deliberating in RI lead paint retrial

A verdict or other culminating event in the much-watched retrial could come at any moment, according to Jane Genova, who's been liveblogging the proceedings. According to Genova:

* the jury wanted to declare itself hung, but has been talked into continuing;

* the public nuisance count seems to be what the jurors can't agree on;

* jurors asked the judge to clarify the concept of "unreasonable interference with the right common to the general public", part of the public nuisance definition.
