Juror can’t be disqualified for believing criminal justice system is racially biased

Read this new opinion from the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.  It reversed a trial court decision to strike a potential juror for cause because she expressed a belief that the criminal justice system is biased against black men. According to the court of appeals, our justice system is biased, and jurors having this belief will likely try harder to be fair. Consider the possibilities for your next voir dire.
