Canseco brothers ordered to pay
Former Major League Baseball player Jose Canseco and twin brother Ozzie will not comment on a jury decision that was handed down in Miami.
The two have been ordered to pay more than $736,000 in compensatory damage to two men they beat up at a Miami Beach nightclub back in 2001.
The panel of four men and two women deliberated for two days before they delivered the verdict. Jose Canseco had insisted that he never struck either man, but said he did push one of them with an open palm.
Both Cansecos had pleaded guilty in 2002 to criminal battery charges, though both testified that Ozzie did all the hitting.
