This is the first of three reports dealing with Contempt of Court, the remaining two to be published in 2014. This report deals with three main areas: (1) recommending a new criminal offence for jurors conducting prohibited research; (2) recommending an exemption of contempt liability for publishers relating to archived online material and (3) recommending a limited exception to the prohibition on jurors revealing their deliberations, in order to reveal miscarriages of justice, or to participate in carefully controlled research.
