JURY CLEARS ORLANDO OF HARASSMENT CHARGE

A federal jury rejected the claims of two of Tony Orlando's former backup singers, who said the entertainer sexually harassed them.

"There's a feeling of liberation after you go through something like this that's hard to explain," a tearful Orlando said after Friday's verdict.

Sonya Buckelew, 37, and her sister Aleta, 34, each wanted $50,000 for pain and suffering.

During the trial, several people testified that Orlando shouted at just about everyone he employed.
