Picking Jurors Via Facebook

I’m keeping a list of the ways that social networking has impacted the legal system in America.  So far I have:

  • Discovery
  • Juror misconduct
  • Judge harassment
  • Sentencing
  • Trial Conduct

Now I can add picking a juror because Texas County attorneys admit to using Facebook to assist with voir dire.   In fact, Facebook is so powerful as a tool for jury selection that the attorney interviewed said that he could seat a juror just with using Facebook.
