Zimmerman Trial Jurors Seek Distance From B37’s Opinions On The Case

Four George Zimmerman trial jurors released a joint statement Tuesday distancing themselves from outspoken Juror B37, CNN reported.

After the second segment of Juror B37’s interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper aired Tuesday night, the four jurors, identified by their jury pool numbers, released a written statement reacting to her comments on the case.

“We, the undersigned jurors, understand there is a great deal of interest in this case. But we ask you to remember that we are not public officials and we did not invite this type of attention into our lives,” the statement read, as quoted by CNN.

“We also wish to point out that the opinions of Juror B37, expressed on the Anderson Cooper show were her own, and not in any way representative of the jurors listed below,” the statement continued.
