California Clamps Down on Jurors Using Social Media

New California Law…

Jurors in California may want to leave their smartphones at home thanks to a new law passed earlier this year that bans jurors from accessing Twitter, Facebook or going online to receive or provide information about the trial.

Today, jurors are exposed to an incredible amount of information simply via the homepage on their computer.”
