Jurors get ‘Melrose’ case

Jurors began their first full day of deliberations Tuesday in the lawsuit by actress Hunter Tylo, who was fired from “Melrose Place” after getting pregnant.

The jury of two men and 10 women — one of them pregnant —was handed the case late Monday, but deliberated only about 20 minutes before quitting for the day.

Tylo is suing Spelling Entertainment Group and Spelling Television, both run by Hollywood mogul Aaron Spelling, for pregnancy discrimination, wrongful termination and breach of contract. Her lawyers have asked for at least $2.5 million in damages.
