Yes, this sounds like a bad movie plot. A dead Las Vegas casino magnate. His topless dancing girlfriend accused of the murder. Gold buried in the desert… and a juror with a Palm Pilot. Okay, that last bit doesn’t necessarily fit, but that’s the latest twist to the story. Apparently, a juror for the case may have received press reports about the case via her Palm Pilot while the trial was going on.
