Jury in Jordan Miles case will resume deliberations Tuesday - Pittsburgh Post Gazette

A jury deliberated all day Monday in the Jordan Miles civil trial, but did not reach a decision and will continue trying to reach a verdict Tuesday.

Last week the jury deliberated for two hours on Thursday, and all day Friday.

The case stems from Mr. Miles' accusation that on Jan. 12, 2010, plainclothes Pittsburgh police officers Richard Ewing, Michael Saldutte and David Sisak jumped out of an unmarked car, unlawfully arrested, unnecessarily beat and maliciously charged him with five criminal counts that were later dismissed.

The officers testified during the three-week trial that Mr. Miles, then 18, was hiding between two houses, ran when they questioned him, fought when they caught him and had a bulge in his coat that they mistook for a gun.

Attorneys from both sides were in the courthouse today, as were the Miles family and the three officers, but there were no public proceedings.
