Vioxx jurors are cashing in as trial advisors. “The practice of paying discharged jurors for their insights, unheard of until recently, shows a growing sophistication and coordination among mass tort lawyers as they pursue big quarry such as Merck. In addition, legal experts say, it could carry risks for the jury process as payments become more commonplace.” (via PointofLaw.com)

    Wow! I wonder if the current Vioxx jurors are aware that if they find the company guilty there’s a big future paycheck in it for them. I hope I can get on a future Vioxx jury!

    Actually, they get paid regardless. And the defense can hire them as well (and probably does).
