Default Use Facebook to Escape Jury Duty

Barry Price, a juror on a Hamilton county civil suit found out that comments on Facebook could cause serious trouble. Price was a juror on a case of a worker injured in a railroad accident seeking monetary damages for his injuries. Price posted a comment on Facebook that read, "Barry Price is sitting in hell ... aka jury duty."

The plaintiff's attorney, Stan Chesley provided an affidavit to Judge William Mallory showing the comment and asked that Price be removed from the jury citing how Price viewed the case where his client could win millions or nothing based on Price's verdict. The judge removed Price form the jury.
