|I may be wrong but the justice system has at least two |
officers (the lawyers from each side) to do this kind of
job, not the judge. It would involve pre-screening the
jurors, which is not the judge's duty.
The judge is human, after all. And (to my knowledge) a judge
does not need to have clairvoyance as one of the requisites
to be a judge. So how can a judge KNOW a juror is giving a
partial answer or lying? That's what perjury is for:
shifting compliance duty to the juror, which can face harsh
penalty for no complying with the orders and even harsher
ones for lying or deliberately omitting important info.
That said, this particular judge asked more than once the
same question, just to be sure no juror could argue for just
not hearing her.
I can argue bias on her actions in a lot of situations but
not on this one.
