Justice Department lawyers said this week they plan to try medical-device executive Jim Mazzo for a third time for violating insider trading rules after two prior efforts ended in hung juries.
10 of 12 jurors in Mazzo’s second mistrial in February favored acquitting him on at least 19 of 20 counts. In May 2017 in the first trial, the jury hung 8-4 for conviction of the cofounder of Allergan spinoff, Santa Ana-based Advanced Medical Optics (AMO).
