When Jurors Blog

It is becoming more common for jurors to blog about jury duty, according to this ABA e-Report entitled Blogger’s Posts Don’t Equal Juror Misconduct:

The New Hampshire Supreme Court has upheld the conviction of a rapist, rejecting his claims that he was denied a fair trial because his jury foreman turned out to be a blogger who complained about having to show up for jury duty to deal with the local "riffraff."


The case may serve as a cautionary tale for trial lawyers in New Hampshire and elsewhere as grumbling about jury service from local barbershops and coffeehouses moves to the Internet.


Indeed, prospective jurors and active jurors are already blogging about their past experiences, and at least on one occasion, directly from the courthouse during service.
