    Jurors in a Post-Pandemic World: What Litigators Need to Know

    A trial by jury has always been predicated on the availability of citizens to serve as jurors.  And while most U.S. citizens over the age of 18 are technically eligible, a variety of other considerations limit the pool from which actual jurors are selected.  Not least of which are individuals’ willingness and ability to serve.

    What Are Jurors Really Doing During Your Trial?

    A jury is seated. They are instructed not to discuss the case until all the evidence has been presented. They are instructed not to do any outside research on the case, the parties, the attorneys, the issues in dispute.

    Do jurors follow these instructions? If not, would they admit it? How many have violated the court’s directives? And why?
