Isaiah Thomas Guilty But MSG to Pay the Bill

From the new WorldPress news feed I’ve just hooked us up with:

NEW YORK -(AP) [1] In an end to a salacious three-week trial, a jury ordered the owners of the New York Knicks to pay $11.6 million (all figures U.S.) to a former team executive who endured crude insults and unwanted advances from coach Isiah Thomas.

The jury of four women and three men found former Raptors executive Thomas and Madison Square Garden sexually harassed Anucha Browne Sanders, but it decided only MSG and chairman James Dolan should pay for harassing and firing Browne Sanders from her $260,000-a-year job out of spite.

So in other words , the jury decided that the one that they say actually performed the act of sexual harassment, doesn’t have to pay a dime one. Is anyone aware of a case where the person or peopel which a jury has decided were the actual perpetrator of a crime, was not forced to pay for that crime?

What circumstances would have led to this kind of decision?
