Sharon Stone has been ordered to pay $275,000 NZ dollars to a man who was injured on her property in 2006.

Peter Krause sued Stone in 2008, two years after he sustained a knee injury by falling through latticework and into a neighbour's yard while working on her house.

Stone took to the stand this week to testify that there was a fence in the spot where the plaintiff alleged the accident happened.

But a jury ruled that the Hollywood beauty was negligent for failing to have a fence sturdy enough to prevent Krause's fall.

Stone's lawyer told reporters outside court, "We're disappointed they did not take her testimony at face value."

Her attorney is considering an appeal.
