Can a jury member post to Facebook or Twitter as long as they don't discuss the case?

Asked over 1 year ago - Mesa, AZ

On-going debate about how far the judge's admonishment order for a non-sequestered jury extends. We already know the obvious, no discussing the cases and no viewing any coverage of the case either through written or televised media.

Additional information

Bear in mind this is for a criminal case and the trial is on-going. This is NOT post trial after the jury has been relieved and the admonishment lifted. - Than you.

    Answered . What are you posting, if not about the case? Are you asking if you can post on your facebook account that you are on jury duty and your case is expected to last several days? Almost certainly. Are you posting on facebook that you are on jury duty and the plaintiff/defendant/accused/attorney/judge/bailiff is an idiot (or something good)? Perhaps not. Ask the judge if you have a question as to what is allowed.
