Some judges have suggested the court start allowing jurors to submit questions. A Minnesota judge did this for many years in civil cases. The court for a variety of good reasons leaves jurors in the dark about the parties or defendant in a criminal case.
I love the photo: women jurors in hats and men in suits and ties. A prospective juror arrived in our court this week in a t-shirt with the name of his favorite team, cargo shorts and flip-flops.
