 A juror in the trial of seven militia members charged with seizing a US wildlife refuge in Oregon at gunpoint earlier this year was dismissed for bias, a federal judge said on Wednesday.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys in the case agreed to the dismissal of the juror, who formerly worked for the federal Bureau of Land Management, after US District Judge Anna Brown said the juror would be questioned more closely about comments he may have made about his bias."It's a new jury, a new day, a new start," Brown said.
