John Simon and Erich Vieth are again joined by John Campbell to discuss Campbell’s research on juror attitudes in the age of COVID-19. How nervous are people about showing up to serve in person as jurors? Will their attitudes toward wearing masks affect their willingness to serve? Have their attitudes about doctors changed to the extent that it would affect outcome on medical malpractice cases? Campbell has surveyed hundreds of potential jurors on these issues. Bonus issue: Should we use this pause in jury trials as an opportunity to re-conceptualize new ways to try jury cases in order to better address juror bias?
