There's some talk today that the convictions of the three defendants in the Whitewater trial could be overturned.
Defense attorneys say it's possible based on one juror's admission that a newspaper article she read before the trial likely colored her opinion of the case.
During jury selection, prospective jurors are asked if they have read anything that might prevent them from being fair and impartial.
