COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Jurors will resume deliberations for a second day in the retrial of a former Cincinnati cheerleader who says she was defamed by a gossip website.
Jurors are scheduled back in federal court in Kentucky on Thursday after failing to reach a verdict Wednesday. Sarah Jones is suing thedirty.com over posts the website published in 2009.
Jones is seeking damages from the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based website and its operator. The posts said she had sex with every Bengals player and probably had two sexually transmitted diseases. She says both are false and accuses the website operator of malice.
The posts were unrelated to the former high school teacher's guilty plea last year to having sex with an underage former student.
The first trial ended with a hung jury.
