Forwarded from: Marjorie Simmons <lawyerat_private> Juror's Exposure to 'Love Bug' Story Didn't Warrant New Trial [The Legal Intelligencer] http://www.law.com/cgi-bin/nwlink.cgi?ACG=ZZZ7YXFOXSC In a case involving a former employee convicted of planting a computer "time bomb" at Omega Engineering Corp., the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that a juror's report that she was exposed to media accounts of the "Love Bug" virus during deliberations did not warrant a new trial. The 3rd Circuit found that the Love Bug virus story "would not have had an impact on the hypothetical average juror's vote." _______________ Marjorie Simmons, Esq. lawyerat_private http://www.carpereslegalis.com - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
