I’ve been there, sitting at the Defense table during trial and the parties had just concluded voir dire, also known as jury selection. The court was preparing to swear in a newly formed jury of my client’s peers. Juror badges were being passed out. My co-counsel was getting ready to deliver opening statements, when I looked into the eyes of each juror and saw what I believed would lead to the loss of our case. My client, a white male, accused of child abuse, unwanted sexual contact, assault, and domestic violence against the mother of his children, was now sitting across from an all female jury.
