How do you know that the jurors don't discuss the case with each other before the case is over?

 

A: The real answer is that we don't. However, the trial judge warns all jurors that they are not to talk to each other about the case until they have heard all the evidence and listened to the judge give them the law. Only at that point are they allowed to talk to each other about the case. The jurors are also told that if anyone should try to speak to them about the case, then they are to report that activity to the Court immediately.
