Third Time Not the Charm; Feds Reject Second Ligambi Retrial

From George Anastasia's Big Trial Trial Blog: The Feds are not going to retry mob boss Joe Ligambi on conspiracy and gambling charges having failed to secure convictions following two separate trials in which both juries were deadlocked over these charges.

In a motion filed yesterday afternoon, the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania asked Judge Eduardo Robreno to dismiss the three remaining counts pending against the 74-year-old mob leader.

George Borgesi was released immediately after the second trial on Friday.

Ligambi's attorney on Monday said he hoped to have Ligambi freed by today.

Anastasia quoted him saying: "Hopefully, my client and I will be having dinner together tomorrow night."

Jacobs said he would be buying.
