Regarding suppression orders—that might work, provided the people involved
are not of international significance. Otherwise you’ll get a situation as
happened with Peter Lewis back in 2000
<http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/HL0008/S00166.htm>, where the story gets
widely reported by overseas organizations with no connection to NZ, so with
no lever that the authorities here can apply to them.

As for juries using the Internet to research cases on their own—currently
this is treated seriously enough to be grounds for a mistrial. Should it
continue to do so?

How you going to know if the juror has searched the net. Look at
their search logs at home or seize their computer??

Jurors are not sequestered until they start deliberating.
