    They aren't allowed to talk about it during the case. Usually they are allowed to talk to anyone afterwards. I served on a jury and afterwars, the judge specifically told us that after the verdict was annouced, we were free to talk to the attorneys and the parties to the case if we so chose. None of us did so, but the option was available. The judge I used to clerk for often went and talked to the jurors after the verdict in civil cases, because as an ex- P.I./ tort lawyer, it was very interesting to hear from them about where they thought the lawyers in the case went wrong or right. Members of several famous jury cases including Casey Anthony and O.J. have famously talked to the press about their experiences.
