Jurors Online Discussed in New Journal

The Reynolds National Center for Courts and Media and Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism (University of Nevada Reno) launched a new journal in February: the Reynolds Courts and Media Law Journal.

The first issue, Winter 2011, included articles on venue after Enron, guidelines for unmasking in public figure libel cases, and a summary guide on courts and media for judges.

The Spring 2011 issue has four articles on "Modern Media in the Courts":

  • Judge Dennis M. Sweeney, When Worlds Collide: Digital Natives Enter the Jury Box, p. 121
  • Genelle I. Belmas, That's What "Friend" Is for?: Judges, Social Networks and Standards for Recusal, p. 147
  • Gareth S. Lacy,* Untangling the Web: How Courts Should Respond to Juries Using the Internet for Research, p. 169
  •  Stacy Blasiola, Say "Cheese!": Cameras and Bloggers in Wisconsin's Courtrooms, p. 197
*Gareth is a 2011 graduate of the University of Washington School of Law.
