Jury to Decide Verdict in McDonald's Strip Search Hoax

The decision about who will be held responsible in a McDonald's strip search is in the hands of a jury.

The jury in Shelbyville is deciding on the $200-million lawsuit against McDonald's for the alleged strip search and sexual abuse of 21-year-old Louise Ogburn of Bullitt County.

After about two hours of deliberations, jurors asked to review some of the evidence presented during the trial.

Judge Thomas McDonald said he would allow jurors to see a copy of the employee handbook Ogborn signed, but he denied requests to review a map showing the locations where other hoax calls were received.

For nearly four weeks, attorneys have passed blame around in the case.

Now it all comes down to the eight-woman and four-man jury.

In her suit, Ogborn claims the company failed to warn her and other employees about a hoax caller posing as a police officer who had already struck at McDonald's and other fast-food restaurants across the country.
