BEND, OR -- A U-S Supreme Court ruling Monday, tossed out non-unanimous jury verdicts in Oregon as unconstitutional. Deschutes County D-A John Hummel is pleased. He says only Oregon and Louisiana allowed the non-unanimous verdicts but that’s over.  Hummel says Oregon voters approved a ballot measure years ago allowing less than unanimous verdicts. He says the measure was intended and designed to disenfranchise immigrants. Hummel says there are four Deschutes County cases on appeal and he expects the courts will order re-trials in those cases.
