The People v. O.J. Simpson is a series telling how this famous trial went.
In the 9th episode, after Judge Lance Ito states that another judge should determine if the case can remain before this court or not, the prosecution figures have this conversation :
CHRISTOPHER DARDEN : So... what should we do?
MARCIA CLARK : Chris, I've been thinking about this constantly. The problem is, it's too risky. If it's perceived that we pushed for mistrial, it would trigger double jeopardy and it that version, O.J. walks. Can you image the public reaction?
Is this dialog actually plausible? How could double jeopardy be triggered if the first trial wasn't completed?
