April 26, 2021
Chief Justice Rogers (ret.) was quoted regarding the importance of a diverse jury by Law360 Pulse in the article, "Conn. Task Force Stresses Importance Of Jury Diversity."
Justice Rogers, a member of the Connecticut's Jury Selection Task Force, stated on a Connecticut Bar Association webinar on April 21 that, "when I was thinking about this last night, I found it hard to find a better demonstration of why this is so important than what we have all been witnessing in Minneapolis for the last month."
The panel discussed that historically the majority of people picked for juries are white. The Chauvin trial jury was unusual in that it included a mix of white, Black and multiracial jurors.
