Two jurors took a pic with Rose. One said he had never heard of him (not a sports fan), the other is not a Rose fan. pic.twitter.com/vKpwX8BGld

Waukeen McCoy, the lawyer for Jane Doe, had strong words about the verdict. This, via Deadspin:
“Waukeen McCoy, the lawyer for Jane Doe said he doesn’t see how the jury could have reached the conclusion it did. He told reporters “a celebrity can come to court and slut shame a plaintiff.”
The Knicks point guard and his friends Randall Hampton and Ryan Allen were accused of breaking into Rose’s ex-girlfriend’s apartment in August of 2013 and having sex with her when she was intoxicated and drugged.
The jury unanimously found Rose non-liable on all counts. Allen and Hampton were cleared on all counts as well.
