Supreme Court To Hear Appeal Over Juror Dishonesty

March 3, 2014, 10:47 AM

Supreme Court To Hear Appeal Over Juror Dishonesty
WASHINGTON -

The Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether a juror's comments during trial deliberations can be used to show dishonesty during the jury selection process.

The justices said Monday they will hear an appeal from a South Dakota man seriously injured in a motorcycle accident with a truck. He sued for negligence, but a jury returned a verdict for the truck owner.

A juror later revealed that another juror commented during deliberations that her daughter had been at fault in a similar case and a lawsuit against her daughter would have "ruined her life."

The motorcyclist sought a new trial, saying the juror was dishonest during the jury selection process when she claimed she could be impartial.

The district court denied the new trial motion and an appeals court agreed.
