Jury Trials

This story on jury trials should ring some alarm bells.

* Only one in ten people summoned in Auckland for jury duty turn up
* In two trials a juror declared the defendant not guilty before they had heard any evidence (electing the Chair)
* Two jurors didn’t speak a single word during the entire deliberations
* Four jurors did not take any notes or read any of the material
