On Wednesday, defense counsel moved to have the juror removed claiming that she is likely to have a grudge against the defendant. However, the judge refused to do so because he determined after questioning the juror that she could be fair. Furthermore, the judge found that the juror did not recognize the person who took her cab. It should be noted that his juror is also an attorney.
On Friday, the court reversed itself and removed the juror. The court reported that the juror in question read a newspaper article about the incident. To learn more about this case go here.
