Apple Refuses to Answer Samsung's Q Re When It Learned About the Foreman's Seagate Litigation ~pj Updated

I don't get this.... Yes and no. Your saying a lawyer would
think that you shouldn't volunteer information. In my
opinion that's under different circumstances though. As a
prospect juror you should be giving them all information
possible. The whole point of that day of questioning is to
find out as much information as possible. This questioning
is not to get you into trouble, it is to see if your a good
fit for the jury. The judge needs to know of a bias or
anything like that which could potentially hurt the trial.
Their is NO reason for any body being questioned in this
process to hold information back.... Now the reason to hold
information (the reason why lawyers say dont volunteer info
is to make sure your not saying anything which could
potentially harm you in court, which obviously isn't relevant during the
prospect juror questioning. That's my
opinion at least.
I say the man should have raised his hand and finished, because if that was me i
wouldn't have wanted to look like a
fool later like the man is now. Hind sight is 20/20 i know,
but this is obviously a huge issue. If asked a question like
that I know I would spout out at least my biggest litigation
issues. That bankruptcy lawsuit against Seagate is pretty
big. Big enough to get the judges attention over it.
