Jurors in the trial of former top U.S. economic official Larry Summers will continue their deliberations on Thursday, according to Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden’s spokesman Matthew Duvall.
Following the 4th day of deliberations, there will be no opinion regarding the legality of Delaware’s mandatory sequestration, Duvall said.
There will be no ruling on whether Delaware’s death penalty should be suspended in the case as well, Duvall said. The jury has until next Thursday to arrive at a verdict.
Delaware Law requires jurors who are sequestered to stay in the same hotel they are sequestered for several days during deliberations. After eight days in Delaware, the jurors and six alternates moved back to Florida on Thursday evening.
The jury consists of nine women and three men. The panel also includes eight alternates.
Summers, 68, is accused of sexual harassment during his time as president of Harvard University. He is the former chairman of the president’s Council of Economic Advisers.
Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden is prosecuting the case alongside the state’s Sex Crimes Unit.
