New Report Shows Ongoing Racial Discrimination in CA Jury Selection

An eye-opening report from Berkeley Law’s Death Penalty Clinic finds that
racial discrimination is a consistent aspect of jury selection in
California. The exhaustive study investigates the history, legacy, and
ongoing practice of excluding people of color—especially African
Americans—from state juries through prosecutors’ peremptory challenges.

Clinic students and faculty evaluated 683 California Courts of Appeal
cases involving objections to these challenges, used by attorneys to
excuse potential jurors without providing a reason why, from 2006 to 2018.
Prosecutors used their strikes to remove African-American jurors in nearly
75 percent of these cases, Latinx jurors in about 28 percent, and white
jurors in only three cases (0.4 percent).
