New WI Jury Instruction on Social Media

From The Third Branch by the Wisconsin Court System:

To help judges address electronic communication during trials, the Wisconsin Criminal Jury Instructions Committee recently developed a jury instruction that was disseminated to judges at the Judicial Conference and is also available on CCAP (the Consolidated Court Automation Programs).

Professor David Schultz, chief staff member of the Wisconsin Criminal Jury Instructions Committee, was interviewed by Terry Bell of Wisconsin Public Radio about the new instructions. An audio recording is available online in the WPR Archives ("Online gadgetry during trials cause problems.")

[I can't seem to find the instruction on CCAP - anyone else have any luck?]
