Federal Judge Replaces Jury Foreman Accused of Bullying, Tells Jury to Begin Deliberations Anew

Nov 16, 2012, 05:51 pm CST


the newspaper said the foreman was cursing! And made another juror cry! I can understand trying to get rid of the foreman if I felt he wasn't going my way, but it sure doesn't sound like he's refusing to deliberate. If anything, it sounds like hardcore deliberating!

If bullying isn't allowed, there will be a lot less verdicts, probably...

If it were a foreperson instead of a foreman things may have been different.
