New York Law Journal Publishes Commentary by Judge Gail Prudenti, Dean, on Supreme Court Ruling Against Racial Stacking of Juries

A commentary by Judge Gail Prudenti, dean and executive director of the Center for Children, Families and the Law, titled “Jury Selection Shouldn’t Be an Opportunity for Advancing Racist Agenda” was published on Aug. 27 by the New York Law Journal.

In her commentary, Judge Prudenti argues that in the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in June in a case called Flowers v. Mississippi, the justices “confirmed in no uncertain terms that attorneys cannot misuse ‘peremptory’ challenges to exclude potential jurors solely because of their race.”
