Juries That Work: Simple Rules.
And from the Milwaukee-Texas axis. Here's a gem we missed featuring two of our favorite students of the Science, Art and Holy Surprise of 'Twelve Good Men and True'. See Anne Reed's August 21 piece at her Deliberations and the discussion of Mark Bennett's "Simple Rules for Better Jury Selection", which Bennett continues to update, at Defending People. For excitement, brightness and a little color--and to make this item longer--we offer an illustration from a past WAC? piece about how federal and state jurors in the same metropolitan area can differ from each other in unexpected but exotic ways. Below is one who will take more than his share of notes.
Tom Wolfe, NYC, state court juror, sharp dressed man.

Allow me to add that if Tom Wolfe happens to be on your panel in a criminal case, do not strike him. Just trust me on this.

And in antitrust, IP, contract case in SDNY with Greenfield-Hull McGuire defending The Bigness? Strike TW?
