    Furthermore, jury members that were present undertook the following oath,

    "Do you, and each of you, understand and agree that you will well and truly try the cause now pending before this court, and a true verdict render according only to the evidence presented to you and to the instructions of the court?"

    At the moment, I am missing the list of jury members that took the oath. I believe it was the following:

    NiCo, Sir Underpants Gnome, Halo In Reverse, Krystal Olivaw, Grey Eagle, Cebo, Lady Kat
