More on Jews and Juries

Sorry again for the intermittent blogging. I just finished a lecture in Roanoke yesterday, did a quick final edit on a book review for the Washington Post (look for it next week). And flew to Salt Lake City...

This follow up on the jury selection controversy in San Jose...

A former California prosecutor testified Tuesday that he colluded with a judge to exclude Jews from the jury in a capital case that ultimately sent the defendant to death row.

"No Jewish person can sit on a death penalty jury and vote for death," the judge said, according to Quatman.

Gotta love my people.
