Article: In Google We Trust? Judges & the Internet

The October issue of the ABA Journal has a short article about judges practicing fact finding via the Internet. Entitled In Google We Trust?, the full text of the article is available in Wisconsin via Badgerlink.
The author notes that “an ABA committee reviewing the Model Code of Judicial Conduct has proposed a revision that would extend independent fact-finding prohibitions to electronic media, a proposal dubbed by some lawyers and judges as the ‘don’t Google the defendant’ rule.”
