HARRIS COUNTY JUDGE: NO TWEETING IN COURT PLEASE!

IN 2010 THE JURY INSTRUCTIONS ARE SEEING SOME ADDITIONS!


With new technology comes new jury instructions in some Harris county courtrooms…This shows just how social media is affecting all aspects of our lives. In the 127th district court jurors heard some editions to their jury instructions today. Judge RK Sandill warned the potential panel during jury selection not to mention any aspects of the trial Facebook, twitter or blogs…Judge Sandill says no online polls either. The judge made it clear tweeting about the case is just like talking about it out in public. Those jury instructions are surely a sign of 2010.
