Juror Code of Conduct


While a case is being tried, you may not talk about the case among yourselves or with others, nor should you listen to outside conversations.  You may not mingle with lawyers or witnesses during a recess, nor accept such favors as a ride home from witnesses, parties, or counsel.   If any interested party approaches you or other jurors, immediately report this communication to the judge.   Each juror must retain impartiality.
