ABA: Lawyers can scour jurors' social media sites

ABA Lawyers have been given the green light to scan the social media sites of jurors.

The American Bar Association says it's ethical for lawyers to scour online for publicly available musings of citizens called for jury service - and even jurors in deliberations.

But the ABA does warn lawyers against actively "following" or "friending" jurors or otherwise invading their private Internet areas.

Justices reject Wisconsin appeal over abortion law

Saturday marks 50 years since James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner were murdered while trying to help African Americans in Mississippi register to vote during the “Freedom Summer” of 1964.

That summer, hundreds of young, white northerners had descended on the staunchly segregationist state to help with civil rights organizing and black voter registration drives. On June 21, Goodman, Schwerner and Mississippi native Chaney set out from the town of Meridian to investigate a church burning — they never returned.
