Juror No. 1

The Court
The purpose of jury selection is to ensure fairness and impartiality in this case. If you think that you could not be fair and impartial, it is your duty to tell me. All right. Juror Number 1.
I’m aware of the defendant and I hate him.
Benjamin Brafman
I’m sorry.
juror no. 1
I think he’s a greedy little man.
the court
Jurors are obligated to decide the case based only on the evidence. Do you agree?
juror no. 1
I don’t know if I could. I wouldn’t want me on this jury.
the court
Juror Number 1 is excused.

Juror No. 25

This is the price-gouging, right, of drugs?
the court
This case has nothing to do with drugs.
juror no. 25
My kids use those drugs.
the court
As I said, the case does not concern anything that you might have read or heard about the pricing of certain pharmaceuticals.
juror no. 25
It affects my opinion of him.

Juror No. 59

juror no. 59
Your Honor, totally he is guilty and in no way can I let him slide out of anything because —
the court
Okay. Is that your attitude toward anyone charged with a crime who has not been proven guilty?
juror no. 59
It’s my attitude toward his entire demeanor, what he has done to people.
the court
All right. We are going to excuse you, sir.
juror no. 59
And he disrespected the Wu-Tang Clan.
