IMS Senior Director of Jury Consulting Merrie Jo Pitera, PhD and IMS Jury Consulting Advisor Christina Marinakas, JD, PsyD were recently asked for comment by NBC News, Reuters, and Bloomberg on the jury selection process for the fraud trial of Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes in San Jose, California.
In the articles below, Merrie Jo and Christina share their expertise on the potential impact of vaccination requirements on jury impartiality, the likely elimination of jurors with anti-corporate biases, and the use of social media to assess jurors’ views on domestic abuse.
With jury selection complete and opening statements set for September 8, 2021, we will soon discover how the issues of vaccination status and juror biases may affect the trial outcome.
