Are We Our Jurors Keepers??

Thought I would share some additional information relating to a great discussion on what the judge is supposed to do and what he/she ACTUALLY does on one of our Affiliated Discussion Groups
Link to article:

But thought I would share this discussion on "New Instructions for Jurors".. ie the result of the influence of the internet/social media, etc.
Here is part of that file, dated June 2012:
Before Trial:
You, as jurors, must decide this case based solely on the evidence presented here
within the four walls of this courtroom. This means that during the trial you must not
conduct any independent research about this case, the matters in the case, and the
individuals or corporations involved in the case. In other words, you should not consult
dictionaries or reference materials, search the internet, websites, blogs, or use any other
electronic tools to obtain information about this case or to help you decide the case.
Please do not try to find out information from any source outside the confines of this
May you find Strength in Your Higher Power,
