Mark Myrie, better known as Jamaican reggae artist Buju Banton, will return to court on 26 June before US district judge James Moody.
Myrie will appear along with Terri Wright, the juror who is alleged to have violated court orders during the performer’s February 2011 drugs trial.
A computer expert has already tried to determine whether Wright read up on the singer and the law during the trial.
The expert was given access to a hard drive surrendered by Wright and found a trail of 1.6 million Internet history records, but none pertained to the time frame in question. Imhotep Alkebu-lan, Myrie’s attorney, has suggested in a court filing that Wright didn’t surrender the correct device.
Wright will be questioned about the computer expert’s report and might also be quizzed on other issues raised in a defence motion for a new trial.
