Appellate Court Finds Prosecutor Bias Against Gay Jurors

Posted May 9, 2018

The California Third District Court of Appeal found that prosecutors improperly removed two gay jurors from a criminal panel. The prosecutors argued that the jurors might be biased against the victim, a closeted gay man. The Court found that the bias was based solely on the jurors’ sexuality in this case of first impression for California. See The Recorder (paywall), Lambda Legal , Lambda Amicus
