A Nevada jury has cleared a physician in a wrongful death medical malpractice case stemming from the May 2010 suicide of LPGA golfer Erica Blasberg, who is from California.

Jurors deliberated less than an hour yesterday before clearing Dr. Thomas Hess.

Blasberg's parents accused Hess of pursuing a romantic relationship with the 25-year-old golfer.

They say he put that interest ahead of her medical needs.
