Using various proprietary systems and processes to prescreen jurors can reveal potential threats to the fairness of your end jury. Political positions, interests and hobbies, personal biases, social and religious affiliations, and group memberships can all play a part in determining who the individual is behind the jury questionnaire.
While the time between meeting your potential juror and making a selection of who will sit in judgment of your case can be short, AIA has the manpower available to screen wide pools of individuals in limited time.
While screens can take place at any stage of a trial, we recommend beginning with the jury questionnaire development. During this process and continuing on through voir dire, investigators are given the best possible opportunity to gather information beneficial to your case.
Using collected intelligence, investigators can work hand-in-hand with attorneys, jury consultants and additional team members strike potential threats. With the differing laws on jury selection, evidence to show cause for a juror to be struck from the panel can be needed. Our team can provide you with exactly what your jurisdiction requires.
Our team is highly trained in the latest Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) and privacy laws dictated by state and federal law, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act and other regulations on our industry. We have been called upon to instruct government entities on how to operate within the guidelines of the law. Obtaining information about jurors outside of the courtroom is expected by experienced litigators and judges, and well within the scope of ethical behavior.
