An article is here. This is becoming a critical issue, since jurors can now “view” accident scenes without having to drive anywhere; they can “research” technologies from their homes; and they can find all sorts of information out, without the protections of evidentiary rules. I’ve heard tales that some consultants are relying on jurors to violate these admonitions and so are planting information — good for them, bad for the other side — and working to make sure it shows up when jurors look on line rather than in the court room for evidence.
