A federal jury has reached verdicts on six of the seven FBI and Oakland police officers accused of framing and violating the civil rights of environmental activists Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney in the controversial 1990 car bombing, according to Earth First! officials. 

Lawyers for both parties are expected to meet with U.S. District Court Judge Claudia Wilken to discuss jury deliberations at 8 a.m. on Tuesday in the Oakland Federal Building. 

It was not known at press time whether or not verdicts would be read following the morning’s scheduled meeting.
