Event:
How to Impanel a Civil Jury in Superior Court - LIVE WEBCAST
 
Additional Information:
The presenter will discuss several strategic aspects of impanelment, including identifying the worst and second-worst voir dire questions ever.

The process of civil jury impanelment in the Superior Court is controlled by statutory requirements and procedures that trial lawyers must know and know how to implement. This has become more important in recent years as trial judges have begun to use alternate impanelment methods, sometimes to a party’s disadvantage, in an effort to speed up the impanelment process or encourage juror engagement in the proceedings. This seminar will address:
  • The size of the jury and number of alternates in a civil case
  • The examination of prospective jurors
  • The standard for challenging a prospective juror for cause
  • The number of peremptory challenges for prospective jurors and for alternates
  • What it means to be able to challenge "one in three" qualified jurors and how many total challenges that phrase provides in practice
  • The statutory requirements regarding alternate jurors and when you should or should not object to a judge’s attempt to modify those requirements
  • How the struck juror method works in the context of the statutory framework.

Speaker:
John S. Foley, Esq.
