Jury selection and the Enron verdicts

Brenda Sandburg of American Lawyer/Law.com goes inside the Lay/Skilling trials with the jury consultants who worked with both sides. "The consultants concur on one thing in particular: that early victories by the prosecution on jury issues were pivotal in getting a conviction. 'The venue and the jury selection were the only things that could have made the difference [for the defense],' [Reiko] Hasuike says. Dimitrius [Jo-Ellan Dimitrius, famed for her work on the O.J. Simpson defense] was key in helping the prosecution score wins on both points-getting Judge Simeon Lake III to keep the trial in Houston and making it easy for him to limit voir dire."
