Jury Rules No Damages Be Paid by Tyson

NEWSWIRE

November 02, 1990

A jury Thursday ruled that former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson did not have to pay punitive damages for fondling a woman in a Manhattan disco.

The jury of five women and one man deliberated less than an hour before deciding Tyson did not have to pay Sandra Miller additional damages. A day earlier, they ordered Tyson to pay $100 in compensatory damages for the incident.

"I'm just happy they saw it as the truth," said Tyson, who denied the incident ever happened.

Miller's lawyers sought $2.5 million for the incident they said occurred Dec. 10, 1988.
