    Trial started April 30, 2019 with opening statements & continued on May 1 with testimony which began on May 6. Trial is expected to take 12 to 18 weeks. Trial ended on 7/16/19. Jurors: 7 women/5 men (4 alternates; 5/1: One alternate juror removed due to work hardship. 5/9: one alternate juror removed as “veracity” issues). 8/19/19: 3 women on jury replaced by 2 men & 1 women alternates for contact with media. Court dark on Fridays.
    Court hearings, Jury selection & Trial Days (1 thru 37) from 8/10/18 thru 7/31/19 & Jury Deliberations (Day 1 thru 10) from 7/31/19 thru 8/19/19 reference post #873 here:
    VERDICT WATCH - CA - Massive fire at Oakland warehouse party, 36 dead, 2 Dec 2016 #3

    8/20/19 Day 47/Day 1-Deliberations: The jury was told to restart deliberations in the case, disregard all past discussions and remember they cannot talk to others about the case or seek outside information about it. Judge Thompson also imposed a gag order preventing attorneys from discussing the case with reporters. During a session in open-court outside the presence of the jury, Judge Thompson said at least two of the three women she booted from the panel yesterday could potentially face contempt proceedings because of juror misconduct, specifically having unauthorized contact with media or news reports and reviewing outside material. The judge described two of them as "offending jurors" and the third as a "non-offending juror," although Brian Getz, an attorney for Almena, made clear they believed all three should be considered "offending jurors." The new jury deliberated for their first full day without reaching a verdict. They will return for more talks Wednesday, 8/21 - and then they will not return until Tuesday, Sept. 3 because of a previously scheduled break approved by Judge Trina Thompson.
    8/21/19 Day 48/Day 2-Deliberations: The minutes of closed hearings that Thompson held on Monday to discuss the alleged juror misconduct indicate that the alleged misconduct prompted attorneys for Almena & Harris to make oral motions asking her to declare a mistrial in the case but she denied their motions. Thompson said at the end of the day on Tuesday that she will hold a hearing on a defense motion Wednesday morning, 8/21. Jury deliberations probably will extend past Labor Day or even later because Thompson previously scheduled days off for jurors beginning on Thursday until Sept. 3, the day after Labor Day, so that jurors have time to transport their children to college. Thompson, who noted that her original estimate was that the trial would last until the end of October, said she also is dealing with jurors' requests for additional days off, including a request by one juror for a lengthy break between Sept. 9 and Oct. 6. No verdict reached on second day of “new” jurors. Jury will be back on Tuesday, 9/3.

    Clark County had pulled in jurors from Hamilton County. Clark County Prosecutor Jeremy Mull said the jury selection will begin Sept. 4. That means opening statements could be heard as early as Sept. 6. But the defense filed a motion late Monday, 8/26 so that the next jury would be selected from a different county due to the publicity of the trial. If that motion is approved, that date could be pushed back. The jury will be sequestered.
