Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS A JURY POOL INVESTIGATION?

Put simply, a jury pool investigation is the process of obtaining relevant information about a jury pool to significantly improve the effectiveness of jury selection. Information available on jurors seems limitless nowadays as more and more people place personal information online creating digital trails and internet footprints. Information is obtained on a juror by conducting extensive due diligence, reviewing numerous social media sites and blogs, and analyzing other pertinent databases.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CONDUCT A JURY POOL INVESTIGATION?

Jury pool investigations can be conducted at any stage of a trial. To receive the full benefit of such an investigation, we recommend our services before, during and after the trial.

HOW CAN THESE INVESTIGATIONS ASSIST AT THE ONSET OF A JURY SELECTION?

Using social media to prescreen jurors can reveal potential biases, political leanings, personal relationships relative to the case, hobbies, interests, opinions on current news, relevant digital subscriptions, group memberships and affiliations.

HOW ARE INVESTIGATIONS CONDUCTED DURING THE TRIAL?

Social media monitoring can be conducted twice per day throughout the duration of the trial. These investigations can provide real-time trial intelligence, may impact trial strategy, can identify juror misconduct on social media, and helps verify juror’s compliance with court instructions.

WHAT ARE POST-TRIAL INVESTIGATIONS?

Database research and/or direct contact with jurors to assist with future trial strategy. These investigations come in the form of juror questionnaires which assist in future trial preparation, provide a better understanding of verdict and identify what, if anything, jurors are saying about the case.

ARE JURY POOL INVESTIGATIONS LEGAL?

Absolutely! Ethos’s experienced investigators are trained on all privacy issues and handle jury pool investigations in a professional and ethical manner. Obtaining information about jurors outside of the traditional voir-dire process is fairly commonplace with courts, practitioners, and state bar associations all approving and encouraging its use. Additionally, juror information is generally outside the scope of discovery.
