A juror and an aquitted defendant, who decided to chat via Facebook about a drug and corruption trial last August, were found guilty of contempt of court. The case just might be the U.K.’s first prosecution for contempt of court involving social media.
California’s Supreme Court ordered the case of a juror who was asked to turn over his Facebook messages be revived and sent back down to the lower courts.
A juror asked to turn over the contents of his Facebook account will appeal the court order.
A California judge gave a juror 10 days to turn over his personal Facebook postings he wrote during a gang beating trial.
