>actually, during the trial the Juror's can send questions to the Judge. A couple years ago when I was on a drunk driving case, I did exactly that, and after the next break there was testimony on exactly what I had asked about.
Wow. I had no idea that such things happened. I thought that jurors were only allowed to ask about evidence already introduced and points of law. I wonder how general this is in US jurisdictions.
>There are a LOT of landmines out there if the Jury starts investigating.
True. But as long as jury questions are mediated by the judge, it doesn't seem like that much of a problem (except for the judge, that is).
