Jury Bias | The American Association For Justice

Jury Bias


Too often plaintiffs lose cases they should win. These cases are often lost due to jury bias, not the actual strength of the evidence. The Jury Bias Litigation Group is cochaired by Jerome F. O'Neill and the creators of the Jury Bias Model™ David A. Wenner and Gregory S. Cusimano. Together they will educate members about how jury bias in tort cases impacts jury verdict preferences. The group will exchange cutting-edge research so attorneys can minimize the effects of jury bias and tort “reform” rhetoric. The group will provide members with information and advice about focus groups, mock juries, and jury consultants. The group will also establish a Document Library, a list server, and present educational programs at upcoming AAJ Conventions. The Jury Bias Litigation Group was established in October 2008.
