The Rules of Engagement are changing daily. What do the Judges need to know to instruct jurors regarding use of social media during deliberations? Are model jury instructions needed? What are the ethical lines for judges and lawyers regarding their own use of social media? What are the ethical and liability issues regarding the use of email. Is there a need for guidelines?
