For plaintiffs, lawyers on juries are either FANTASTIC or terrible little shits. You don’t always know which they will be. When I tried a case in my law school town, lawyers on my panel were uniformly sending out a strong shithead status-quo classist vibe so I struck them all.

Remember you need to be a citizen and non felon

Add in that the courthouse is all the way downtown and the non-MFH residents don’t show up.

And the finally the actual hardship cases like single mom with 4 kids who cleans offices or whatever get dismissed

My question on this case is - was there any reliance or even viewing of these "business records" that is being charged here?

Or is just that once you write the "fradulent" business records, that's a crime - even if it as just a private note you wrote for yourself?

From what account did he draw the funds. I imagine if he classified it at atty fees those funds would technically come from some entity other than from Trump directly.

The entire tying to the campaign charges is complete bullshit no matter how you slice it.

He legally donated $55 million to his own campaign. It's stupid to say he stole from the campaign and its stupid to call it a campaign expense.

That's why this is under this bullshit business records charge...

Why are lawyers bad to have on juries?

if they form an opinion they will just convince the jury that they are correct and fuck you, or at least that seems to be conventional wisdom

Do you want a smart jury or a dumb jury. Sometimes you want a smart one. Sometimes you want a dumb one. If the former, an atty may be a good thing on the jury. (I said May).

It's not clear to me, but some very, very smart and good trial lawyers (incl. the judge I clerked for and the name partner of the boutique I started my career with) will straight-up tell you to never, ever let a lawyer on your jury.

Which is strange because this advice was specifically given to me in contexts where it was clear that it was a categorical statement that applies to both sides, which you wouldn't really think would *ever* be the case. (Most 'categorically bad' jurors are bad for one side or the other, not both.)

a lawyer is likely to latch on to some bullshit little fuck up and press it in deliberations, I think both sides are usually counting on just convincing dumb proles that they are good and deserve to win most of the time, I had a patent lawyer tell me once that he would try to strike anybody even remotely smart from any jury because they'd try to understand the patent and ignore the point he was trying to make

yeah I don't get this rule and don't necessarily agree with it, but it's spoken like Scripture

I've never been in a situation where I've actually had to decide whether to strike a lawyer or not.

The most common answer I've heard is that the remainder of the jury will just defer to whatever the lawyer says. But, a, I'm not sure that's true and, b, if it is true than it's probably true in every case and they're just as likely to latch on to what some vocal plumber or confident HR lady says and go with her.

the CW is that all the other jurors will defer to the lawyer(s), who are typically vocal, pretentious about being lawyers, and use jargon.

So you have reduced your jury from 12 to 1. Now the entire case rides on one person's determination, and that person is vastly more likely to be more technical, niggling, rule-obsessed, status-obsessed, and intelligence-signaling than the average person.

They could cut to either side, but the CW fear is that you've just placed the entire verdict in the hands of an asshole

I think it depends on the legal issues involved. A majority of mock jurors in a patent case will agree with the statement "Even if the patent is invalid, plaintiff should still recover damages." As a plaintiff, you don't want an actual lawyer in the room to be able to explain why this is retarded.

Pretty sure these are all libs lying through the skin of their teeth. “Uh yeah I totally read the Post.” “That he…did so much…I find him…fascinating. It’s almost like I can’t stop thinking about him, like he’s given me some sort of derangement syndrome. What no your honor I didn’t wink at the prosecutor just now.”

I think the MAGAS will be more inclined to lie. I'm basing that on the tendencies of MAGAS on here to lie.

There are only like 30k MAGAs at most in all of MFH based on voting history and polling. I.e. basically 2% of the total population. So the odds that there are more than 2-3 MAGA people in the entire pool are very low.

seems like a lawyer would be a good choice for trump's team. you have to assume 95% of the jury pool is reflexively anti trump and itching to convict, at least a lawyer will be more likely to be autistic about making sure the elements of the alleged crime are actually met

yeah, and a lawyer might also think this stuff is weak because he's seen a thousand clients do worse with business records. Normies might gasp when they hear "forged entries!"
