“Does anyone even know what this case, People/Monsters v. Oscar the Grouch, is about?” asks a curious and somewhat tickled Elmo.

“Well,” says Grover, “I don’t know for sure, but I heard there was fowl play. Oscar, being his usual grouchy self, got sick of Big Bird and all that cheery yellow- so he finished BB off.”

Kate chimes in, “I don’t think we should be talking about this. We are supposed to be impartial jurors. At least that’s what I think voir dire is about.”


Slide9 l.jpg

“What do you mean?” asks the group… “What’s Voir Dire?”Kate stammers, “wwwwell, I think it’s the process of asking questions and picking jurors to get an impartial jury for a case…but maybe we should do some research to make sure.”

“And where should we start Kate?” asks Trekkie Dire?”Kate answers, “I think first we should look at Secondary Sources, from there look at Primary Authority, and finally look to Other Available Sources.”

“So,” says Trekkie, “through American Jurisprudence, we learned that the court uses Voir Dire to determine if each juror is competent, that we have a duty to fully disclose our opinions, the trial court has to make sure potential embarrassment is protected, and there is no required limit on time for questioning.”
