A U.S. District Court jury did not reach a verdict today in the case of Dr. Anindya Sen and his wife, Patricia Posey Sen.
The jury will resume deliberations at 9 a.m. Thursday after deliberating more than seven hours this morning and afternoon.
The Sens operate East Tennessee Hematology, Oncology and Internal Medicine clinics in Greeneville and Johnson City.
The government alleges the practice ordered foreign drugs not approved for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Medicare and Blue Cross/Blue Shield are among the health care providers the government alleges were billed $3.2 million between 2009 and 2012 for misbranded drugs.
Anindya Sen, 65, is charged with 29 misdemeanor counts of causing the introduction into interstate commerce of misbranded drugs. Patricia Sen is charged with 29 felony counts of the same statute.
The government has also charged Patricia Sen with 44 counts of engaging in a scheme to defraud health care benefit programs, seven counts of receiving merchandise imported contrary to law, in addition to two counts of making a false material statement to West.
