Constitutional Vanguard: No, the Judge in the Arbery Murder Trial Did Not Say There Was “Intentional Discrimination” in the Selection of the Jury
So that’s the process. Note that a judge might move the process on to Stage Two if the court initially finds even an “inference” of purposeful discrimination . . . and yet, the judge might ultimately make a finding that the party exercising the peremptory challenge(s) did not engage in purposeful discrimination.
And that, my friends, is what happened here. Ultimately, the court found no discrimination.
Exactly the opposite of what was reported by CNN, and CBS, and NBC. And Oliver Willis!
