    Carpenters leaders win acquittals in bribe case By Ray O'Hanlon, Irish Echo Online
    Based on statements by some jurors that they felt members of the audience in the courtroom reminded them of characters in the HBO series, Atlas wrote that this could 'only be interpreted to mean that the jury believed that some union members who were in the audience, were, as they were on 'The Sopranos,' criminals.'

    Atlas also cited one juror's early announcement to fellow jurors that the defendants were guilty and indicated his concern that the jury's deliberations might have been tainted by anti-union bias.
