NPR's Melissa Block talks to several jurors, who served in the Tawana Brawley defamation case in Poughkeepsie, New York. The jury found three of Brawley's advisers liable for falsely accusing former state prosecutor Steven Pagones of raping Brawley in 1987. The jury ordered Reverend Al Sharpton, and lawyers Alton Maddox and C. Vernon Mason to pay Pagones 345,000 dollars.
