I am an attorney who is about to begin a jury trial. I have obtained a list of all of the jurors and have gone on social media to learn about some of these jurors. I see information that would show that some jurors are extremely biased one way or the other. Do I have an ethical duty to advise the court if the jurors don't state the bias they are showing in social media when they are questioned?
Lawyers have an obligation to inform the court of evidence of jury bias discovered through social media
