Closing arguments were given in the Bryan Stow-Dodgers civil case last week, and it has been in the jury’s hands for five days. But they’ve decided absolutely nothing on those five days. From Courthouse News Service:

The Los Angeles Superior Court Information Office said in a statement Wednesday:

“The jurors in the matter of Bryan Stow v. L.A. Dodgers have announced that they are having difficulty reaching a verdict. They were instructed to return to the jury room and continue deliberations.”

The case is in its fifth day of deliberations. The jury has yet to answer a single question on the verdict form, Los Angeles City News Service reported Wednesday.


The first question on the jury form is whether or not the Dodgers are liable. If they can’t get nine of 12 jurors to answer “yes” to that, then the case is over and Stow does not recover. If they can’t reach any decision whatsoever and remain deadlocked, a mistrial could be declared.
