U.S. v. Chadwell (9th Cir. - Aug. 19, 2015)

It seems pretty obvious.  But just in case it's not, the Ninth Circuit holds today that it's not improper to let the jury view during its deliberations a DVD that was admitted into evidence and played at trial.  That's perfectly fine, and the defendant has no right to be personally present while the jury does so.
