Abstract

"Cover Story" piece on the jury selection process in Maine, which is one of just eight states that allows judges to ask all the questions of potential jurors. But powerful forces, including U.S. Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O'Connor, are pushing for other states to mimic Maine's system because they believe lawyers have too much leeway to select juries that are favorable to their clients. With comments by Maine attorneys Gerard Conley Jr., Tom Hallett, Bruce Merrill and Dan Lilley, Assistant District Attorney Randall Bates, and Justice Donald Alexander of the Maine Supreme Court.
