Supreme Court to Rule on Race Bias in Jury Selection

Only Available in Archive Formats.

Allegations of racial bias in choosing jury members are being heard once again by the U.S. Supreme Court. We take a closer look at the case of Thomas Miller-El and its potential impact on the often-murky process of selecting juries with Paul Butler, a former federal prosecutor, and Dan Young, CEO of Directed Decisions, a consulting firm that specializes in helping attorneys select sympathetic jurors.
