It is an offence for a lay member of the Court Martial1 for proceedings to research the case that is the subject of the proceedings during the trial period2. A person researches a case if (and only if) the person intentionally seeks information3 and when doing so, knows or ought reasonably to know that the information is or may be relevant to the case4. It is not, however, an offence under these provisions for a person to seek information if the person needs the information for a reason which is not connected with the case
