Nevada - LAS VEGAS - A state court judge declared a mistrial Wednesday in a felony attempted murder and gang activity case against eight Hells Angels stemming from a December 2008 brawl with rival Mongols motorcycle club members at a downtown Las Vegas wedding chapel.
Clark County District Court Judge Michael Villani ruled Wednesday that prosecutors failed to fully turn over to defense attorneys evidence including photographs and documents to be used during the trial, court officials and defense lawyers Tom Piraro and Chris Rasmussen said.
Prosecutors Chris Owens and Sonia Jimenez weren't immediately available for comment. An aide to Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said a decision wasn't immediately made on whether to seek a retrial.
The judge's ruling was first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. It came on what would have been the seventh day of testimony in the trial of eight of 13 men who pleaded not guilty after their July 2010 indictment. Jury selection began July 16.
