The jury blog Deliberations has had some really interesting posts up lately on the considerations of putting juries together, but one of the most interesting is up today. Anne Reed, who consults on juries as well as practices law, lays out a detailed and intriguing outline of the factors that should go into the vetting of potential jurors, far beyond the “can you vote for the death penalty?” stuff. She obviously doesn’t promise instant or continual success and does point out that the mixing of factors makes prediction difficult. Still, it’s a nice trainer in what to do and look for and insights in the process of trying cases. Make that blog a frequent stop. You won’t be sorry.
