Here are 19 appellate decisions from 2012-13 regarding jurors and jury selection that you should know about. (Via Prezi; great thanks to creator T. Smith.)
I found it while I was exploring the online app Prezi, in my search for a way for medium competent laypeople to create attractive and compelling charts (e.g., good timelines, etc.) for use in jury trials. I am open to and grateful for your suggestions.
Meanwhile, brush up on these jury-related appellate rulings. Very interesting stuff. I am particularly appalled that a trial judge anywhere in America would, after finding a prima facie basis for a Batson challenge would then exclude defense counsel from the room while hearing the prosecutor’s justification for the peremptory challenge, followed by a refusal to share with defense counsel what those justifications were, nor his reasons for denying the Batson challenge. Um. Yeah. Wow. I get that the black robe can sometimes do some odd things to the wearer, but, even so, wow.
