Mistrial in Travolta Extortion Case

10/22/2009 1:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mistrial in Travolta Extortion CaseThe judge in the John Travolta extortion case has declared a mistrial, reportedly because of jury misconduct.

Justice Anita Allen
released the jury and declared a mistrial after learning that a member of Parliament announced at a political convention that defendant Pleasant Bridgewater -- a former Senator -- had been acquitted by the jury.

It's unclear if jurors had actually reached a verdict. There's an unconfirmed report that one of the jurors may have communicated information to the Parliament member who spoke out.

No word on whether the jury may have reached a verdict on Tarino Lightbourne.

I think that john is a good man but deprived the boy of needed medical care because of his believes. Stupid and dangerous to the point of the boy dying. That's just my thoughts as misguided as they may be. I feel that if you are wealthy and have access to dr's take advantage of it. I don't think the Travolta's did from what Ive read and seen. I really like John and his body of work but you got to get a grasp on reality because you only have one chance and you should spare no expense or effort to save a child. I hope he did all he could, and it sucks if someone is trying to capitalize on the death of a child. If that's the case bury the guy.

sarah palin is a murderer. i wouldnt be surprised if she killed travolta's son. she sent off her own son to die in iraq, so that she could steal your tax dollars for her bridge to nowhere. sarah palin will shoot you in the heart with one of her 500000000000 guns if you wear antlers this halloween.
DONT LET SARAH PALIN KILL YOUR CHILDREN THIS HALLOWEEN!!!!!!
