The five man and one woman jury began deliberating shortly before noon today in the Ted Vives vs. Linda Hull lawsuit and counter suit.

Judge James Hall asked the jury at 4:45 p.m. if they were anywhere near a decision and they said they were not.

Because of a 6 p.m. Municipal Building site selection committee meeting today in council chambers where the District Court trial has been held since Monday, Hall instructed the jury to end their deliberation and reconvene tomorrow in the District Court in Santa Fe.

The reason the jury has been asked to convene in Santa Fe is because Hall has a full day of hearings there in First District Court.

He assured jurors he will interrupt whatever he is doing if they have a question and when they are ready to render their verdict.
