Jury unanimous that Little did not defame Mrs Hagaman. Agree he defamed Mr H. at least once. But no agreement on whether he has a defence.
In respect of other causes of action, jury deadlocked. So no order of damages as yet. Could be a new trial.
Retrial limited to questions jury couldn’t agree. Still possibility of settlement, esp. as Mrs H lost, and will be liable for some costs.
This is basically a win for Little. I doubt it will go to a new trial considering the health of Mr Hagaman.
