signed away --
a hung jury

But your's I liked. Again.

Mmmm. This is one to sit with a while. Is it comforting or sad or disappointing or reassuring? or all of those things? Great one. So enormous for being so small.

I think I'm sorry there wasn't.

Oh, checked my notes, and found sign away from a law-dictionary, better perhaps to give in or to give up ?

Also hand over could be one idea...

All these variations sounded so good to me, but what is the strict meaning of the writer, that's a Q!

Thanks for the comments, angelika, jem, and pat. Ah, tikkis, lawyere language!
