A Judge’s Wife on the Jury Does not Ruin the Trial
September 29th, 2016
In a recent Missouri case, the judge who was handling the trial had his wife on the jury. When the attorneys did not remove the judge’s wife from the jury, the judge’s wife was allowed to remain acting as a juror. Missouri law states that a judge is not required to remove their spouse from a jury in their own court.
