Judge orders jury to keep deliberating

LOS ANGELES - Jurors in Britney Spears' driving case say they can't reach an unanimous verdict. A judge ordered the panel to resume deliberations.

The jury deliberated less than two hours Monday at a San Fernando Valley courthouse. They posed two questions, including one that sought to clarify what Spears was charged with.

Shortly after being read more instructions, jurors indicated they were deadlocked.

The judge ordered the panel to give him an update before lunchtime.

The eight women and four men are sifting through roughly a day's worth of testimony and arguments in the case, which was filed last year after the pop star hit a parked car and left the scene.

Fashion critic Mr. Blackwell dies in L.A.

LOS ANGELES - Mr. Blackwell, the acerbic designer whose annual worst-dressed list skewered the fashion felonies of celebrities from Zsa Zsa Gabor to Britney Spears, has died. He was 86.

Blackwell died Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center of complications from an intestinal infection, publicist Harlan Boll said.

Blackwell, whose first name was Richard, was a little-known dress designer when he issued his first tongue-in-cheek criticism of Hollywood fashion disasters for 1960 - long before Joan Rivers and others turned such ridicule into a daily affair.
