LEO: Communication With Jurors LE Op. 417
Communication With Jurors.
May 21, 1981
It is improper for a lawyer to communicate by letter with members of a
jury his or her thanks for the manner in which they completed their
service. While no one can disagree that jurors are entitled to be
commended for their service, such communications by a lawyer would create
at least the appearance of an effort to influence a juror's actions in
future jury service in violation of DR:7-107(C).
