Dual Juries

Santa Clara CrimProf Gerald Uelman and Stanford CrimProf George Fisher are quoted in this article about a request for dual juries in a California case where two defendants are jointly being tried for rape and murder.  Evidently, the defendants may point the finger at each other.  When I read the headline, I thought that a single defendant was going to ask for two juries for his own antagonistic defenses, so that he would be acquitted if Jury A accepted the alibi defense OR if jury B bought self-defense.
