COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Jurors were ordered to try again Friday after telling a judge they couldn’t reach a verdict on a defamation lawsuit filed by a former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader against a gossip website that featured lewd posts about her.

U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman sent the jury home Thursday evening after several hours of deliberations and instructed them to return in the morning. If the jurors ultimately can’t agree on the lawsuit filed by former cheerleader and high school teacher Sarah Jones, the case would have to be tried again with a different jury.
