Fumo Wants Juror Removed For Online Comments

03.16.09 | FL News Team

Attorneys for state Senator Vince Fumo have asked a judge to stop jury deliberations because one juror has apparently been blogging during the trial. The motion was filed on Sunday and defense attorneys say the juror has violated Court orders by letting people know the status of jury deliberations.

Attorneys also say they believe the unidentified juror could have looked for blogs discussing Fumo's corruption trial and want the judge to investigate his actions. The juror did not reveal his opinion on the trial in the messages but did say a "big announcement" was expected today.
