Outside Research Threatens Integrity of the Civil Court System
The idea that jurors should consider only the evidence presented during the trial is as old as the American justice system. Only the judge is allowed to decide what evidence is admissible, since outside sources might be inaccurate, biased, and/or irrelevant.
But in our age of instant communication with family, friends, and the news media, these outside influences can easily influence the internal deliberations of jurors. Is there a solution?
