I attended a Webinar on Social Networking and Attorney Ethics recently in which the presenters stated that jurors can “Google” attorneys in the case. However, this article suggests that courts in Texas, at least, don’t allow jurors to review an attorney’s “track record.”
I’m not sure it makes any sense to allow a juror google an attorney but then say they can’t research how well they have done in court. The one would automatically lead to the other. Now, this article is focused on jurors in Texas while the presentation I saw focused on California.
