Jurors and the Internet - Part 2

By John DiMotto

In a previous blog, I discussed the problems that can arise during a jury trial when jurors go on the internet for information. This topic is getting quite a bit of attention because of how it can derail a trial and create a nightmare for a retrial.

Today, I attach an article from The Jury Expert that discusses the issue at length. It is one of the best articles I have seen on the issue. It is a must read for all judges.

Enough said.
