The article below provides an overview of issues that can arise when selecting jurors in a capital case. Although the focus here is on looking at cases that arose in California, this article should be helpful to anyone interested in learning more about how jurors are selected in death penalty trials. The author notes that "Jury selection issues [in death penalty cases] often comprise the bulk of the California Supreme Court’s legal analysis on appeal."
The author questions whether trial judges work equally as hard to rehabilitate both pro and anti-death penalty jurors. He seems to indicate that California trial judges are more inclined to keep pro-death penalty jurors but excuse anti-death penalty jurors.
