NASSAU, BAHAMAS (WFLX) - A set back for actor John Travolta. A judge ordered a retrial in the extortion case because of possible juror misconduct.

There's no set date for a new trial.

An ambulance driver and his lawyer are accused of trying to extort $25 million from Travolta following the death of the actor's son.

Travolta's attorney said the actor will cooperate in any way possible and testify again if necessary.
