Juror's Exposure to 'Love Bug' Story Didn't Warrant New Trial
[The Legal Intelligencer]
http://www.law.com/cgi-bin/nwlink.cgi?ACG=ZZZ7YXFOXSC 

In a case involving a former employee convicted of planting a 
computer "time bomb" at Omega Engineering Corp., the 3rd U.S. 
Circuit Court of Appeals found that a juror's report that she was 
exposed to media accounts of the "Love Bug" virus during 
deliberations did not warrant a new trial. The 3rd Circuit found 
that the Love Bug virus story "would not have had an impact on 
the hypothetical average juror's vote."
