A Los Angeles Superior Court judge Monday rejected Robert Blake's request for a retrial in the wrongful death suit filed by the children of his late wife.
The refusal to grant a new trial means the $30 million verdict stands, E! Online reported.
The civil jury ruled 10-2 in November that the actor "intentionally caused" his wife's 2001 death. Blake's legal team cited juror misconduct in seeking a new trial.
The motion for a new trial was submitted late last week after another judge rejected the "Baretta" star's attempt to declare bankruptcy.
