The defense and prosecution rightfully should be able to exclude jurors they think are biased against their case.

I read somewhere that Marcia Clark essentially ignored their jury consultants recommendations and went by gut instinct. O.J.'s jury consultant, by contrast got several of their top picks seated in the jury box.



that actually makes more sense .i'd heard LA hired a 3d rate consultant to save money


does seem there's things the court should know (about jurors), but also maybe things they shouldn't

[and just weird stuff: i'm certain that i was rejected last time i went in because i spent the break talking to the woman next to me about Tolstoy.... defense asked neither of us any questions ...but rejected us both right after break
