#2: Look out for the Scripture quoting pastor-juror in death penalty cases. Attorney, Nilgün Aykent Zahour, and SM JUROR analyze the juror misconduct issues in Halvorsen v. White, No. 15-5147, 2018 WL 3993716 (6th Cir. Aug. 20, 2018).
In this podcast episode, we answer the question: Is there juror misconduct when a juror, who is a pastor with strong religious convictions, quotes Scripture to support his views on the death penalty when the defendant was convicted of murder?
Additional topics are Bible-related juror misconduct, procedural default, the juror who is a pastor, and the Scripture quoting juror.
