    What if people on Jury have Google shares?

    Do you think every juror got asked if they own shares in Google? If they have an Android or Apple phone? Some people dont even know whats in their 401ks or the Funds they own.
    During the trial they might (re)think that they are not 100% aware of their portfolio (Funds etc).
    So they might come to the conclusion that it could be very likely that they do own some Google.
    Of course they have probably been told that they cannot consider that, but it will always be in someones mind or subconsciously affect the decision making process.

    What do you guys think?

    • Every juror was screened and asked. It would be illegal for any of them to own a stock that they would benefit from with regards to the jurors decision..

      • Most people dont know every share they have in their 401ks (funds). Do you? I don't. Plus, they can change at any time.
        What if during the trial they come to the conclusion that it is very likely that some or their funds has a Goggle position? Are they going to be replaced? Can VRNG request the full profolio of every juror?
        Also, do they own Android phones? I would only allow people without Andoid phone on the jury.
