WSJ charts more Voir Dire via Social Media

Just the other day, I posted about a Texas District Attorney handing out iPads to prosecutors to check out potential jurors.  Now comes this Wall Street Journal article which suggest these types of practices are fairly common.

The same D.A. is thinking about offering up free Wi-Fi for jurors who allow his prosecutors to temporarily “friend” them so they can see more of their Facebook profile.  What if a potential juror says, no?  Will they face any consequences for refusing prosecutors, Facebook access?
