Report: Jury Deliberates Isiah Thomas's Fine
There was no official verdict, but the wording of a note to the judge by jurors makes it clear that they have reached decisions on the key points of the trial.
They reached a decision on eight of the nine questions on the jury form; they were deadlocked on the other question, which asks whether Thomas should have to pay punitive damages. That question only becomes relevant if the jury of four women and three men first determines that Thomas and Madison Square Garden committed harassment against the former executive.
The judge sent the jury home for the day, asking them to deliberate again on that question Tuesday.
Needless to say, this is a good night for Anucha Browne Sanders and her legal team, and a bad night for Madison Square Garden, Isiah Thomas, and their legal teams. Wonder when we'll get a real verdict -- because until then you'd have to think that, conceivably, anything could happen.
