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

Nov 16, 2012, 12:51 pm CDT


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…
