Sample Online Supplemental Juror Questionnaire as used in Alki Tours, Inc. v. Tyson Verse et al. 19-2-15199-4, in King County, Washington.

This online questionnaire also appears in Appendix F of THE ONLINE COURTROOM: THE FUTURE OF REMOTE TECHNOLOGY IN THE LITIGATION PROCESS (Ken Broda-Bahm & Richard Gabriel eds., forthcoming 2022). This online questionnaire contains some case-specific questions included by agreement of the parties. Had one of the parties objected, the court would not have allowed some of them.

Online Supplemental Jury Questionnaire used for demonstration purposes for the MN v. Derek Chauvin Trial

This online questionnaire was developed for Jeffrey T. Frederick, Online Jury Selection, in THE ONLINE COURTROOM: THE FUTURE OF REMOTE TECHNOLOGY IN THE LITIGATION PROCESS (Ken Broda-Bahm & Richard Gabriel eds., forthcoming 2022) (manuscript at 8-9). It is an adaptation of the written SJQ used in State v. Chauvin, No. 27-CR-20-12646, 2021 WL 2621001, (Minn. Dist. Ct. June 25, 2021) which arose out of the murder of George Floyd. Some modifications were made for clarity purposes.  However, the major changes needed to meet traditional online questionnaire design and efficiency were not made in order to retain the original appearance of the written questionnaire. For comparison purposes, the original written SQJ used at trial can be found here.
