Description

Due to a flawed selection system, blacks and whites in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, do not have a reasonably equal chance of being called to jury duty, as the U.S. Supreme Court requires. This investigation spurred several major changes, including an ongoing statewide study of jury pool imbalances, several proposed bills in the PA Senate, and a jury registration drive by the local NAACP.
