I Could Not Care Less . . .

I don't know the precise reasons why, but the ridiculous "legal" stories that the media deems "newsworthy" enough to merit national media attention absolutely infuriate me. So, just to get it off my chest, I am declaring that I could NOT possibly care less about:

*Jennifer Wilbanks, the runaway bride, mowing lawns or doing anything else as part of her community service

*What Scott Peterson's life is like in prison

*Natalee Holloway, her mother, stepfather, their private investigator, that annoying Aruban newspaper editor who somehow manages to get a paper out even though he seems to be on television 24 hours a day, or any other pretty, blond, missing person

*Any criminal defendant proposing to use a ridiculous defense that no jury will ever believe

*Any plaintiff filing a clearly frivolous lawsuit that will quickly be tossed out of court by a judge (who will also probably impose sanctions) and never come close to a jury trial

*Any "celebrity" being charged with some insignificant fine-only offense like possession of a marijuana cigarette or public intoxication, or any rappers being charged with drug or gun possession

What "legal" stories could you not care less about?

I came upon your website quite by accident this morning. I am following a high profile case in Chicago and the jurors have just been released for a long weekend.

The question I have- to the best of your knowledge has anyone ever done a poll or study on whether non sequestered jurors ever admitted to doing research, talking to friends or family members etc on info to help them reach a decision while away from the courts watchful eyes?

What are the penalties ramifications should this be discovered?
