How Juries Think - Sometimes Surprising


Ross Laguzza who consults with lawyers about how juries might react to a certain case is profiled in this story in the Roanoke Times. One example he gives is a sexual harassment case where the victim was a 6 foot 3 inch, ex-Marine who claimed he was harassed by his 5 ft 1 inch, 100 lb female boss. As you expect (otherwise it wouldn't be mentioned in the article), what would seem to be the obvious strategy, turned out to not sit well with potential jurors.
