LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A Nevada jury was asked yesterday to award comedian George Wallace at least $7.1 million for earnings he claims he lost as a result of a leg injury he says he received while performing in December 2007 at a Las Vegas Strip resort.

The jury will resume Monday morning. Wallace testified that he was permanently hobbled by a sudden injury suffered when his leg became entangled in wiring during a performance.

Jurors start deliberations in comedian George Wallace’s suit against Bellagio again Monday. That's just the amount he wants. I say he has a slim chance of getting that much unless what they did was so negligent the average person would of been severely hurt under the same circumstances.

Did they award the money and if so why do they resume on Monday? Is this just another example of poor journalism? Please report the real news and a little professionalism while doing it if possible.
