Massachusetts Judges, Trial Bar Embrace Six-Person Juries

Member Cory Flashner spoke to Bloomberg Law on how Massachusetts judges and lawyers are embracing smaller juries in civil cases post-pandemic. He noted the significance of the burden of proof in deciding jury size preference. 

Cory said, “It’s just easier to convince six if you have the burden than it is to convince 12. [Despite understanding courts’ interest in moving cases along], as advocates we always have to adhere to what’s going to be best for our clients.”
