SPORTINGNEWS "Seven women and three men were picked Monday to decide the government's lawsuit charging billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban with insider trading.
The jury includes one man who said he was "leaning" toward Cuban's side based on what he'd already heard about the case. One woman said she was "impressed" with Cuban as a man who stands up for his beliefs, and another called him "a nice guy."
One woman picked for the jury remembered seeing Cuban several years ago on "Dancing With the Stars." When one of Cuban's lawyers asked why he was voted off the show, the woman answered, "He was not a good dancer."
Cuban, at the defense table in a
navy suit, blue tie, white shirt and French cuffs, laughed and nodded in agreement with the woman's recollection."
