Reading list: influencing juries in litigation hot spots

Megan M. La Belle, Influencing
Juries in Litigation “Hot Spots”
: The article argues that litigants and
attorneys sometimes use advertising to improperly sway the jury pool, sometimes
by making factual claims but sometimes by using image advertising to create
favorable background impressions, such as Samsung’s sponsorship of an ice rink
in Marshall, in the Eastern District of Texas. La Belle argues that this
conduct can violate the right to an impartial jury and thus can be regulated
despite the fact that the advertiser’s speech is non-false.  The examples are fascinating.
