The Last Judgment:
From Wikipedia:

In Christian eschatology, the Last Judgement is the ethical-judicial trial, judgement, and punishment/reward of individual humans (assignment to heaven or to hell) by a divine tribunal at the end of time, following the destruction of humans' present earthly existence. This eschatology has spawned numerous artistic depictions.
In art, the Last Judgment is a common theme in medieval and renaissance religious iconography. Like most early iconographic innovations, its origins stem from Byzantium. In Western Christianity, it is often the subject depicted on the central tympanum of medieval cathedrals and churches, or as the central section of a triptych, flanked by depictions of heaven and hell to the left and right, respectively (heaven being to the viewer's left.

A mistrial is a trial that a judge cancels prior to the return of a verdict.
A mistrial may be declared due to:
The court determining that it lacks jurisdiction over a case
Evidence being admitted improperly
Misconduct by a party, a juror or an outside actor preventing a fair trial
A hung jury which cannot reach a verdict with the required degree of unanimity
Disqualification of a juror after the jury is impanelled, unless an alternate juror is available or the litigants agree to proceed with the remaining jurors.
Declaration of a mistrial means another trial must be held in the same matter: one important exception under the United States Constitution is that in criminal cases, if a mistrial was erroneously declared by the court, or if a mistrial was the result of prosecutorial misconduct that had the effect of "goading" the defendant into moving for it, then a retrial is barred by the protection against double jeopardy and the prosecution is terminated.
