Two jurors in a damage suit in Palo Alto county were scored by Judge James DeLarid for inspecting the scene of an auto accident while they were sitting as jurors in the cases. It is believed that the jurors in question were 'endeavoring to fix the scene of the accident in their minds so as to be able to render a fair verdict, and that they had no other motive. Judge DeLand, however, criticised them as follows: "I am fully satisfied, gentlemen, that it would be an abuse of discretion and reversible error to refuse a new trial upon the showing made here. The acts of these two jurors who constituted themselves an independent body of investigation of facts in this case, ignoring and violating the express, positive instructions of this Court which should have guided their actions as jurors, is nothing short of reprehensible. It can be apologized 1 for. It is no excuse to say they had no evil Intent. What they did must be measured by consequences." CHRISTMAS PARTY WILL BE GIVEN AT ST.
