Ethics in Patent Litigation – Jury Research, Including Use of Social Media [01:01:17]

Jury trials present unique ethical issues. This year’s ethics session will focus on some of these issues, including the limits of jury research in the trial venue, research into Internet usage by potential jurors and the use of social media to learn more about a potential or actual juror. Issues relating to Internet usage by potential or actual jurors to learn more about the litigation, as well as the use of social media to influence public perceptions of parties, the litigation or even lawyers and law firms, will also be covered. The session will include a review of recent case law and ethics opinions, such as the ABA’s 2014 Formal Opinion 466 and the New York County Lawyers’ Association 2011 Formal Opinion No. 743, on the use of social media to conduct research on potential jurors.
