Evan:

Even in the most thorough voir dire, say, where a member of the panel says that they are aware of Madison County's reputation as a place for outrageous verdicts, they will still be rehabilitated. See the King trial (topic of the Post_Dispatch article).

These same people will claim that they can be fair in the particular case they sit on when asked by defense counsel.

I found out the hard way.

Evan
