Utilizing Online Activity For Jury Selection
As courts are by and large limiting access to jurors during jury selection, JuryScout can be used as a compliment to traditional jury selection services (such as voir dire questionnaire development and public records searches). Social media information may provide additional information on venire panelists which when compiled, may show political and religious affiliations, biases, and the like.
