Another Issue for Judges In Voir Dire: "Have you viewed the Attorney's website?"

Now that parties to lawsuits or criminal cases are establishing case-specific websites, should the judge ask jurors if they have viewed any websites established by any of the parties or attorneys in the case?

Check out this link:

My answer: a definite yes, with a specific instruction that the jurors shall NOT look for it through Google or any other search engine.  Though I wonder if this simply encourages them to do so anyway.  Perhaps the attorneys could be convinced to shutdown the website prior to trial.
