MOUSEKETEER FIANCE WON'T GET CHEESE.

Byline: Associated Press

Jurors said no dough to former Mouseketeer Darlene Gillespie's fiance, who sued the city for $90,000 after tripping and falling on a pier.

Gillespie, an original cast member on the ``Mickey Mouse Club'' in the 1950s, testified during the trial that fiance Jerry Fraschilla can't jog or sit for long periods and needs pain medication because of the March 1997 incident on the Ventura Pier.

Attorneys for the city and its contractors said Fraschilla was either a con man who faked the fall or a klutz who wasn't paying attention.

The jury said Thursday that Fraschilla, 61, doesn't deserve a dime.

Fraschilla claimed he suffered a severe back injury when he tripped over a warped board.
