Jurors Open Their Mouths

In a remarkable display of indiscretion, two potential jurors have "open their yaps" to the press; telling the world what it was like to be in the jury pool.

The procedure, apparently, went something like this:
  • The potential jurors were shown 10 minute video about court procedures

  • They were then told that they would be on the Michael Jackson case

  • The potential jurors then filed into the courtroom, facing Michael Jackson and his lawyers

  • All 250 eligible jurors filled out a seven-page questionnaire that asked among other questions; if they had any relationship to Michael Jackson, with any law enforcement officers, or if they had any experience with child molestation

  • Those that did not seek deferrals were asked to return on Monday for a further session
Whilst what they have said to the press is inconsequential; it nonetheless seems, to my view, to be a breach of confidentiality and trust.
