Jurors in Bill Cosby civil trial forced to start over deliberations

Jurors in a civil trial who were deciding on sexual abuse allegations against comedian Bill Cosby have been forced to start over in deliberations today.

The decision comes after two days of deliberations in which they reached verdicts on nearly all of the questions put before them.

The only unanswered question pertained to whether Cosby acted with "malice, oppression, or fraud"—which would trigger punitive damages if they answered yes.

However, with that question still unanswered on Friday and one juror unable to continue today, jurors will have to begin again with an alternate in her place.

The 84-year-old is accused of molesting Judy Huth in 1975 at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles when she was 16.

Mr. Cosby has denied having any sexual encounter with Ms. Huth.
