Juror's Exposure to 'Love Bug' Story Didn't Warrant New Trial
[The Legal Intelligencer]
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."
