((((After a tumultuous twelve days, the TYCO jury left the courthouse without reaching a verdict. After several requests for a mistrial, judge michael obus relented, citing intense outside pressure on a juror.

The abrupt ending comes after a six month trial.

(STEPHEN KAUFMAN/DEFENSE ATTORNEY ) (KOZLOWSKI'S ATTORNEY)

"we're disappointed because of events outside of court case did not reach verdict."
Former Tyco C-E-O Dennis Kozlowski was accused of looting TYCO accounts of 600-million dollars, along with former TYCO chief financial officer Mark Swartz.

The evidence included home video of an extravagant toga-themed birthday party for Kozlowski's wife... a 2-million dollar indulgence allgegedly billed improperly to TYCO. Defense attorneys argued all along that TYCO's board and auditors knew about.. and approved every last penny.

Two new york papers printed the name of juror number four, said to be the lone hold out for aquittal. Defense attorneys said the judge had no other option but to call off deliberations.

But it is not the end for Kozlowski and Swartz. Prosecutors are likely to try them again. All sides are due in court in a month to discuss a date for a new trial. Kelly Cobiella, cbs news new york.)) ))
