Jury Decision via Facebook?
A juror in the UK was unsure of which way to go on a difficult court case. In order to get a wider perspective on the issue, the woman created a Facebook poll to gather her friend’s opinions. A crowdsourced legal system? Sounds interesting, but unfortunately the poll was not set to private, so anyone on the network could see it. Discussing details of a court case is of course, against the law, and she inevitably got caught and was dismissed from the trial.
