Bill Cosby Civil Jury Nearly Reaches Verdict, Then Forced to Start Over
The jury in Bill Cosby’s civil trial in nearly reached a verdict on Friday
afternoon, but will instead have to start their deliberations over again on Monday morning.
The unusual twist came at the end of the second day of deliberations in Santa Monica Superior Court.
The plaintiff, Judy Huth, has sued Cosby for allegedly molesting her at the Playboy Mansion when she was 16, in 1975.
The jurors were asked to answer nine questions, including whether Cosby
molested Huth, whether she was under 18, whether Cosby had
reason to know that, and how much damages she should be awarded.
At the end of the day on Friday, the jury informed Judge Craig Karlan
that they had reached a verdict on eight of the questions.
