(Santa Monica, CA) -- A California jury is set to return today after nearly reaching a verdict in Bill Cosby's civil trial.

The comedian is being sued by a woman who alleges he molested her in 1975 -- when she was 16. The jury was asked to answer nine questions about the case, but were only able to reach consensus on eight of them.

The judge would not accept last week's partial verdict, which means deliberations about Cosby's verdict will have to start all over again.
