I am shocked the jurors are not sequestered in the Manafort trial.

    I suspect that is a decision an individual judge might order. It has been my experience that the judge will instruct everyone in the courtroom to turn off the phone or he will have the bailiff take them.

    I suspect that Idaho is somewhat weird. Thanks!

    Oh - But I do have a funny story on first day of jury selection -
    So, before the jury was selected (including me) the judge goes:
    Potential Jurors - Please turn off your phones!
    LITERALLY 3-4 seconds later HIS OWN PHONE BLEW UP!!
    He turned redder/oranger than Trump.
    LOVED that judge, deputy and their lunch order while we were in deliberation the next day :))
