Federal jurors deliberating an excessive-force and civil rights case of a former Hollywood executive against the LAPD on Friday asked to inspect the baton of an officer he says severely beat him. The request from the eight-person jury came before the lunch break on the first day of deliberations. Brian Mulligan, a former co-chairman of Universal Pictures and onetime  Deutsche Bank  vice chairman, suffered multiple nose fractures, a broken shoulder blade and a bloody scalp after two Los Angeles police officers took him into custody in Highland Park in May 2012, he says.

A State Bar of California judge rejected prosecutors' attempts to suspend the license of Louis R. "Skip" Miller, a politically connected Los Angeles lawyer, but ruled that Miller be "publicly reproved." State Bar Judge Carlos E. Velarde ordered Miller to take an ethics examination and attend a one-day ethics class. Miller has admitted that he met with a juror during a high-profile trial. But Miller said he did not think it was wrong, because the juror had been excused by the court clerk.
