California requires a two-thirds majority, or nine out of a twelve-person jury to find for the plaintiff or the defendant. If the jury fails to reach a sufficient majority verdict and finds itself at a standstill (a "hung" jury), the judge may declare a "mistrial," after which the case may be dismissed or the trial may start over again from the jury selection stage.
I am in the Semi industry and very well connected. look back at my posts prior to the Samsung settlement and you will see that i was right on and made a small fortune (1.3 Million) I had a massive long position at $9.50 as well as sold RMBS puts and bought calls. I am equally loaded this time around and believe the jury will come to the truth. For those involved in this industry it isn't even a question of whether the cartel conspired against Micron, it is a question of whether 12 people not smart enough to get off jury duty can comprehend this matter.
Transcript summary of Nissly's closing arguments are up on IV forum. If you have a fair and impartial jury, I don't see how they can award anything to Ramcrap.
The burden of proof was on Rambutt, and they blew it.

Because Nissley says so??? That is a very naive thing to say. I can assure you that Eskovitz was equally compelling for Rambus, as will be Williams in the rebuttal today for Rambus.
These are attorneys and it doesnt really matter what they say. It is what a jury believes. If Rambus wins, I can hear your whining now about not getting a fair and impartial jury because it is in San Francisco.
Both sides have put up compelling arguments. In the end, the jury will decide who they believe. My bet is on Rambus. Rambus executives showed up and gave testimony. Mu executives hid in Boise (Appleton, Sadler and Turner). MU and Hynix have plead guilty to felony price fixing to the DOJ. MU got leniency, but so what. Tabrizi was to be a "rogue employee" acting on his own, but Nissley characterized him as a "respected" member of the MM community yesterday.
Once the jury decides who is telling the truth and who is lying, the damages will follow.
