A Dallas federal jury found this afternoon that billionaire Mark Cuban did not commit insider trading.

After nearly four hours of deliberations, a jury of seven women and two men cleared Cuban on all counts, saying the government did not prove that the Dallas Mavericks owner had received confidential information from the CEO of mamma.com.

The Securities and Exchange Commission had accused Cuban of using confidential information to dump his shares of mamma.com and avoid losing $750,000.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is in federal court in Dallas, telling jurors about calls and emails he sent to the CEO of an Internet firm shortly before he sold all his shares in the company. Cuban’s lawyers say there was no privileged information in the conversation.

Update, 3:15 p.m. Thursday: KERA's BJ Austin has this report on today's testimony:

The Securities and Exchange Commission says Cuban used confidential information from a phone call with the CEO of mamma.com about plans to sell more public shares of the company.

Prosecutors say that Cuban immediately sold his 600,000 shares to avoid losing $750,000. The additional stock sale would have diluted Cuban’s existing stock value and reduced his 6 percent ownership in the company.

Rick Perry wants to use money left over from his failed presidential bid to form a political action committee supporting other candidates.

Perry's campaign has written to the Federal Election Commission asking about forming a PAC or super PAC.

A PAC would allow Perry to raise up to $5,000 from individual donors. Super PACs don't impose contribution limits.

The letter says Perry raised $270,000 for the general presidential election and now is asking donors if that money can be transferred to a PAC since he didn't win the Republican nomination.
