U.S. v. Vartanian (9th Cir. - Feb. 28, 2007)

Judge Bybee is totally right here. Of course you can bounce a juror who repeatedly contacts the family and other people associated with the defendant. Even when you (accidentally) know that she's the lone holdout against a guilty verdict.

I'd have bounced the juror too. And would certainly affirm.
