Long time readers of this blog know that I have am an advocate of allowing juror questions (for previous posts about juror questions go here and here). Well, it looks like the topic is once again in the news. The Boston Globe is reporting that jurors in a Boston federal trial submitted 281 questions for witnesses and lawyers. This large number of juror questions has led the ABA to conduct a poll (or question of the week) on whether or not jurors should be allowed to ask questions. I conducted a similar poll a few years back and was surprised by the number of attorneys who were against the practice. I am hoping that things might have changed. Allowing juror questions goes a long way in keeping jurors from conducting their own research on the Internet.
