Two recent cases highlight how a person’s political affiliation — among other things — can affect what happens in the jury room. Recently, a jury in Wichita Falls acquitted a man (in 18 minutes, no less) on a charge of transmitting a threatening communication in interstate commerce. Translation? He was found not-guilty of threatening a member of Congress in a social media post. The defendant, Gavin Weslee Perry, had made posts on Facebook claiming that…
Whether your jury trial is happening in person or virtually, chances are COVID has had a profound impact on your case before either side gives Opening Statements. In a recent story by Westlaw’s Jenna Greene, she spoke with several jury consultants (including me) about the effect the pandemic has had on jurors. I told her that when I worked on two of the handful of in-person trials that have happened during the pandemic, “the judges dismissed would-be jurors who…
During a brief window of time — before the most recent surge in COVID-19 cases — I had the good fortune to be a member of a trial team that held an in-person jury trial in the Eastern District of Texas. Fortunately, nobody involved in our case contracted the disease, but that good luck did not hold, as a subsequent trial in that same courtroom was recently cut short when several participants tested positive for…

Congratulations to our clients Hint Health Inc. and their counsel Carrington Coleman Sloman & Blumenthal on the decisive verdict in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas on Sept. 30. After a two-week jury trial in U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant’s court, a panel of 8 jurors unanimously exonerated San Francisco-based Hint Health, a health tech startup, on all claims brought by Accresa, an Ameriflex company. Hint was represented by Carrington Coleman’s Alex
We are a nation hopelessly addicted to a constant flow of information, from the important to the trivial, continuously streamed to us through our little glowing devices. Think back to the last time you were on an airplane and were told to shut down your laptop and put your cell phone on airplane mode. You, and everyone around you, probably waited until the absolute last second, or ignored the instructions altogether until the flight attendant…
Remember the college admissions scandal with the Hollywood elite? The writers of “Bull” used it as fodder for this week’s episode, “Quid Pro Quo,” only the alleged bribe occurred 10 years ago. (Photo: David M Russell/CBS) Dr. Samir Shadid, a respected New York heart surgeon, is accused of bribing his way into college. He’s arrested just moments after performing a life-saving surgery. The hospital subsequently puts him on probation, and Dr. Shadid hires…
In this week’s episode, “Behind the Ivy,” 16-year-old Antonio Garcia is worried about “making weight” for his wrestling competition. He’s three pounds over his class and has five hours to shed the excess. His coach says, “You know what you gotta do.” And he does. Chris Jackson as Chunk Palmer, and Michael Weatherly as Dr. Jason in ‘Bull’ season 4 episode 12. (Photo by CBS Broadcasting, Inc.) Four hours later, Antonio is running…
Testifying is stressful, regardless of topic. But when it’s about something personal, the witness requires even more intensive coaching to stay composed. Courtesy of CBS Nothing says Happy New Year like a “Bull” episode with a predictably ridiculous happy ending. This week’s episode, “Look Back in Anger,” involves a civil trial alleging sexual abuse of a minor during camp for at-risk boys. The challenge, however, is the abuse occurred about 25 years ago.…
This week’s episode, “Imminent Danger,” involves stalking, a murder charge, and of course, a jury trial. Erin Flemming believes her ex-boyfriend, Garrett Kurtz, is stalking her. Creepy things keep happening with her electronics (photos pop up on her work computer, her thermostat randomly jumps to 107 degrees in the middle of the night, etc.) and he seems to be in every public venue she goes to. She’s filed a restraining order, however, there’s…
