Some of the data employed in the analyses for this article were collected in conjunction with the NCSC State-of-the-States Survey of Jury Improvement Efforts, supported in part with a grant from the State Justice Institute (SJI-06-N-131) and private contributions to the NCSC National Jury Program. The points of view expressed in this article are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the National Center for State Courts, individual contributors to the National Jury Program, or the State Justice Institute. The authors thank G. Thomas Munsterman, Director Emeritus of the NCSC Center for Jury Studies, for recognizing that we now possessed the data with which to model the impact of a bright-line rule, and Scott Graves, Ph.D., for his solution to the niggling problem of a better methodological option than absolute and comparative disparity.
