…use your best judgment
You may wonder what ignoramus thought tweeting about the trial they were serving on a jury for in the past.
You can’t listen to the radio, watch television, or talk to anyone about this trial but by all means please update your Facebook status accordingly. We’d hate for your “friends” to miss out on the excitement of you civic duty.
Yes, it sounds moronic in print, all I can say is it’s happened enough to be added to the list of federal rules for jurors.
For those of you who need specific instruction in order to have the common sense to use your common sense, which is apparently a lot of you, these rules also outlaw Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Instagram, and any other similar social platforms.
If a juror sees one of their fellow jurors breaking this rule they’re bound to tattle on them, and expected to.
Now don’t we all feel juvenile? Just remember-pay attention and follow the rules, or next time they’re taking away the phone privileges altogether. Alright young lady/man?
