Personal Responsibility Bias


Apparently, the most recent edition of Litigating Tort Cases, the bible of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America contains a chapter advising attorneys to identify people with "extreme views on personal responsibility." Warning signs for "personal responsibility bias" include espousing "traditional family values" and holding "strong religious beliefs." What to do about these folks? "The only solution is to identify these jurors during voir dire and exclude them from the jury." (Hat tip: Radley Balko.)
