A Nevada jury is awarding comedian George Wallace $1.3 million in damages for a leg injury he says he suffered while performing at a Las Vegas Strip resort in 2007.

Tuesday’s verdict from an eight-member jury comes after two weeks of testimony in Clark County District Court and about 12 hours of deliberations.

The 61-year-old stand-up comic known to many as Jerry Seinfeld’s friend had sought at least $7.1 million from the Bellagio Las Vegas hotel-casino, but he says he’s happy with the result.

Bellagio attorneys denied that the hotel and its employees were responsible for Wallace’s Achilles tendon injury.

Wallace testified that he’s permanently hobbled after tangling his leg in wiring onstage while he was giving a private performance for HSBC Card Services Inc.
