VT Hearing on Jurors' Alleged Misconduct in Voir Dire Should be Public Prosecutors Argue

This article brings to mind the issue of attorneys researching the backgrounds of jurors both before and after trial (for purposes of new trial motions).  There would be an incentive for defense counsel to withhold information on a juror's failure to answer honestly during voir dire and only bring forth the information if the defendant is convicted.  See prior posts here discussing this issue.
