Jury Selection Process

Hey all, just a little update about how the jury selection process works here in Pembina County Court. The attorneys have all certified that 12 potential jurors cannot be removed for cause; that they don't have any obvious biases that would keep them from impartially deciding the case. Those folks have been dismissed until tomorrow. The Clerk is now calling another round of 12 potential jurors, and then the lawyers will go through the same process with these until there is a large enough pool cleared of cause. Then tomorrow the defense and the prosecution will get to remove a number without cause before we finally have a seated jury.
