Title: Jury selection questionnaire
Post by: jjr495 on July 17, 2013, 01:09:47 PM
The juror selection questionnaire was released (http://media.trb.com/media/acrobat/2013-07/320095260-17113720.pdf). It is surprisingly short.

I went back to the link of other jury questionnaires (http://jurylaw.typepad.com/deliberations/sample_juror_questionnair.html) posted by previously Jeralyn. It is amazing that Hirschhorn did so well with so little to go on.

It is impossible to tell how well he really did.  Maybe keeping the trial in Seminole County was enough to guarantee there would be no conviction.

I'm surprised that the questionnaire is so short. I have heard of other high-profile cases with immense questionnaires. I wonder how big it would have been if Nelson had let the lawyers have their way.

Hirschhorn has said he believes in short written questionnaires. But this is really vapid. It doesn't even ask if they're married, what their spouse does.

Wasn't question 4 the one that the court told them to put aside? I thought those were the jurors who were singled out for questioning. But #4 only applies to people who have formed an opinion. So the question 4 people must have been eliminated and not called for questioning.
