Tsarnaev jurors asked about everything from siblings to social media
The Christian Science Monitor - 03/18/2015
And while the jury selection process finished several weeks ago — the trial is now in its third week — the unfilled questionnaires provide some interesting insight into how the prosecution and defense teams in the trial have been trying to establish and support their arguments. The questionnaires also offer a glimpse into how unusual the Tsarnaev trial is, with questions about everything from sibling relations to social media.
“These questions clearly relate to what at least the court (with likely input from the parties) believed would be the defense strategy,” says Daniel Medwed, a law professor at Northeastern University, in an e-mail to the Monitor. “[The questions are] rather wide-ranging and seem to show foresight into the strategy.”
