Summary of “Insiders’ Views on Jury Decision Making”
“Insiders’ Views of Jury Decision Making,” co-authored by Lyndall Lambert, Esq. of Holland & Knight and Dr. Melissa Pigott of Magnus Research, was published by the ABA in the Fall, 2006 issue of the Aviation and Space Law Committee newsletter. The article describes Ms. Lambert’s unique experiences as a long time insurance defense attorney who served as a juror on a personal injury case. After each substantive area of Ms. Lambert’s commentary, Dr. Pigott provided an overview of social science research that either confirmed or refuted Ms. Lambert’s experiences as a juror. The article is written in a conversational tone, largely following the format of a panel discussion in which the authors participated with the judge who tried the case. Ms. Lambert and Dr. Pigott are available to re-create the panel discussion for attorneys’ seminars or meetings.
