Recommended Reading: Jurors and Smartphones

Vanessa Romo has an interesting blog post up entitled “Jurors and Smartphones, a troubling mix for courtroom judges,” which has some interesting news about how Washington State courts are dealing with the growing trends of jurors searching for extra-judicial information about the case through their smartphone, or inappropriately sharing their thoughts about the proceeding during the trial through social media.

She also has some stories from around the country about jurors tweeting throughout trials. Unsurprisingly, appeals are pending.

This link was brought to my attention by attorney Thomas Bruno.
