Wow I’m really shocked that Kavanaugh ruled that. I disagree with him on many issues but I agree with his verdict on that.

Clearly we need a whole bunch of judicial overhaul in this country. I’m interested to hear how it’s done in other countries. But I think juries should be truly random unless the potential juror genuinely has a conflict of interest with the case. Also, the jurors should be sufficiently provided for, and the jurors that really don’t have a great ability to complete it at that time should be able to leave bc I suppose you don’t want a juror that wants nothing more than to get out of there ASAP or has doctors appointments or something crucial. After hearing so much about court stagnation, I would think that america would try to increase its supply of lawyers and judges and clerks and legal researchers and decrease the prevalence of trial science and shit

What's interesting in Flowers vs. Mississippi is that Clarence Thomas was a dissenting opinion. With the reason being most of the black jurors that's were dismissed knew the family.

Almost every good sounding system in America has been perverted. However standing up against the perversion makes one anti-American. Most things are not black and white but the existence of this phenomenon is convenient to facism. Welcome to the dominant fascist state of the free world.

In canada if i'm not mistaken we get chosen with our health card number, so no problem there. My sister-in-law had worked as a sheriff at court, transport the prisoner. She use to tell me if they went through all the people that were called they would go get those that skipped the call Oooor if they really had no one would go to the local shopping mall and mandate old people. Mostly because they just have time on there hands, lol. Thought that was funny. Beware the food court grandma.

having lived in NYC for 9 years as a foreigner I would have loved to do jury duty, cause it's such a cliche and seen on so many TV shows. I think that experience would have been great - being part of the american fabric of life. got a card once, was surprised since I am not a citizen, but nothing ever came of it. too bad ...

Jury duty is part of the social agreement we have with one another. If it's drugs you will never convince me it is a morally wrong thing to do.

I may be worried over nothing, but wouldn't making jury lists public be a risk to the safety of the jurors? Suppose a member of a crime syndicate gets convicted for murder and jailed, another member of that syndicate would find the names of witnesses, lawyers, and judge of that trial (as could already happen) but also the jurors who found them guilty. Then those people would be harassed, assaulted, or possibly killed for their member's incarceration.

I've got an idea to reform the peremptory challenge process.... GET RID OF IT ALTOGETHER!!!! England got rid of it Criminal Justice Act of 1988 because they saw it as a derogation from the principle of random selection. Canada just got rid of it last year because it was found that it frequently discriminated against the participation of indigenous people in the jury system. Aside from unconscious racial bias, it also should be eliminated because we should assume that attorneys will pick the jurors that will give them the best chance to WIN THEIR CASE!!!! The purpose of the criminal justice system is not to win. It's to affirm the rights and responsibilities of citizens and to right wrongs that have been done to the community.

5 years ago, you were laughing that Pope Francis and George Clooney condemn Turkey who did. Genocide of Armenian people in 1915. Now you can be happy, Turkey and Azerbaijan doing genocide in Artsax, and nobody cares. Silence is violence. Looks like the world democracies, NATO support war, genocide, ISIS terrorists in Karabax. Karabax never been Azerbaijan, only 65 years, when Lenin and Stalin gave Azerbaijan Karabax and Nakhichevan to Azerbaijan to spread communism in Azerbaijan. They gave more lands of Armenia to Turkey too for the same reason. Nakhichevan is now clean, no Armenians, only Armenian monasteries And khachkars, cross stones. Karabakh fighting for survival and freedom with Azerbaijan, Turkey, Israel, Pakistan, ISIS, Ukraine, NATO, Georgia, terrorists. No comments. Russia waiting, because Armenian premier-minister is Nicol Pashinian, democratic leaders. Only France and Canada comdemn terrorists. That’s it.

I still can't believe that a 25 second rant, that I am sure was intended to be a one off, ended up in him getting a memorial sewer plant named after him. I'm pretty sure the joke was that he went off on some random city for no real reason, and didn't even say anything bad about the city.

The best way for me to get off jury duty during selection is to start off by being extremely polite, be precised and quick with your answer or start off with a cowboy accent and switch half way into normal voice. Either way works they don't want any one who seems rational or crazy.

Actually Danbury is even more significant for Thomas Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists back in 1802. The Baptists back then wanted separation of church and state! These Baptists started as a small denomination that faced persecution in Europe since they were not the officially sanctioned government religion. The Baptists must have fretted that the United States would at some point make a decision on an "official" state religion, and being a smaller denomination compared to the other larger mainstream denominations, asked Thomas Jefferson -- in the name of religious freedom -- to keep church and state separate.

This reporter is either a moron or is...no, he’s a moron. The motion he is talking about is called Batson-Wheeler. The logistics are are too complex to go into in a RUposts comment, but I’ll leave a cite below. Long and short is that no, an attorney cannot start kicking propel off of the other side “plays the race card.” It’s quite the opposite. If one attorney (most often for the Defense) makes this motion, it means they are alleging the other side (i.e. the Prosecutor) is kicking people off BECAUSE of race, gender, etc. If sustained, it stops one side from kicking people off because of race. In other words, these motions exists to stop juries from being all white. Here is a good primer: www.dailyjournal.com/mcle/136-batson-wheeler-objections-to-peremptory-challenges

And yes, a jury with racial diversity is inherently more cautious and deliberative.

you mean making jury lists public under 'freedom of information' statutes right? some sort of 'due process' that dots the i's and crosses the t's but doesn't expose jurors to a desperate, guilty plaintiff. otherwise smart people are going to save mcmahon and his ilk the trouble. also... i love your work!

Would it be possible to make sure that the “race” ratio (like 10% Latinos, 30% Black etc) stays the same even after the selection? Since the race ratio was drawn randomly they should make sure it is kept even after selection no?

Maybe I'm just cynical, but all these private companies who "accidentally" exclude populations with the higher/highest percentage of non-white folk... these things don't seem "accidental" to me. I mean, I believe in coincidences, but when it happens with such frequency? Not bloody likely, if you ask me.
