Interesting upcoming Supreme Court case
The Supreme Court is getting ready to start up a new term. Thus far, it has only decided to hear a few cases. More will be added. One of the more interesting new cases thus far is Warger v. Schauers involving a civil suit. According to the NYT (see link): " The question for the Supreme Court in the South Dakota case, Warger v. Schauers, No. 13-517, is in a way quite modest. It is not whether Mr. Warger deserves a new trial but only whether he can rely on evidence from inside the jury room to try to get one. Courts have generally refused to allow such evidence on appeal.
