John Edwards: Judge Holds Conference on Potential Juror Issue
Uh-oh. No, I don't think it's the flirting juror. It sounds like some jurors have discussed the case in a small group. The judge held a closed meeting with counsel for 35 minutes today and then sent the jury home with a stern warning:
"All of your deliberations should take place while you are in the jury room and together," Eagles said. "Don't discuss the case in small groups."
Is this related to the coordinated clothing? Four alternates and 2 jurors wore bright red shirts today.
The judge will start court early on Tuesday and make take up the issue again then. If an alternate gets on, the jury has to start deliberating all over. What's transpired so far doesn't count.
