The Maryland Daily Record reports that jurors in the Sheila Dixon trial Facebook friended each other before the jury verdict.

The messages were very “no harm, no foul” but there were 12 lawyers working on this case for Dixon. Somehow, I expect this will come up. Judge Sweeney will not declare a mistrial over it, and neither is the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. But expect a lot of trees to go in the process of this outcome.
