The Pennsylvania jury has been deliberating since last Tuesday in the case against the abortion doctor. The jurors asked to rehear instructions again.

I don't think the Arias jury will have many questions, every thing was laid out for them. I like that the jury instructions were given prior to closing arguments. Juan helped with some of the items. That didn't happen in the Casey Anthony trial, Judge Perry read the 27 pages and sent the jury on their way.

I wonder how much this is going to cost the AZ taxpayers.

Probably $2+ million dollars ... it was $1.6 million over a week ago.

I had been led to believe the jurors were receiving only $12.00 a day plus mileage of 44.5 cents per mile ... this trial is considered an Arizona Lengthy Trial and there is a special fund for that type trial:

Arizona lengthy trial fund provides for jury service reimbursement of lost income, up to $300/day. Completed application and documentation of lost income must be received and notarized by the Office of the Jury Commissioner within 30 days service. All application forms are available online or from your trial court staff.

Prolly HLN is paying them to keep the trial going as long as possible - good for its ratings.

Whatever happens HLN will beat the Arias trial to death until June 10 when the Zimmerman trial starts in Florida. I am sure that is next on their agenda of trials.

CW,

In my limited time to do so I've read a little bit about that PA doctor. I might be confused of his trial vs. another ongoing one. I recall reading that in a non-AZ trial the judge turned to the jurors and asked if they had questions for any of the witnesses. It made the news as that hadn't happened previously in whichever state that trial is being held.

Do you know if that is the same trial or not?

One thing I really like about how AZ conducts trials is the jury questions. I hope more states will add that option to their legal rules for jury trials.

Thanks in advance for all the great info. I can't rep anyone on CD and most posters in this thread deserve it so much for their research and additional info. Sorry about no reps to everyone.

I saw an estimate yesterday that the bill was at $1.6 million now, but have no way to verify or guess what the costs are while a jury deliberates.

Does anyone know if the judge has to essentially limit her work to office work or very brief hearings so she can be available to answer questions from the jurors, as she described the process last week, and be available for when the jury arrives at their decision?

Thanks!

I would agree 100%.

Let's hope these AZ jurors are an example for those who will sit through the Zimmerman trial. I guess HLN could start dissecting the attorneys, should a sudden verdict come in for ARIAS. That could keep them talking for a few days.

Arias handwritten letter to Judge Duncan regarding "the precarious circumstances of her legal defense" ... dates 3/14/2011 ... when Nurmi was trying to withdraw.

Last Friday the jury advised they would deliberate 9:00 AM until 4:30 PM until they reached a verdict ... when they completed the day they announced they would start deliberations at 10:00 AM on Tuesday!
