Q: Can the jurors wear attire with the plaintiffs pictures on them . Also can jurors wear attire with " Black Lives Matter
Foreman and a few other jurors whore attire with Black Lives Matter and plaintiffs pictures on the clothing during. Court trial hearings
A: i have never heard of a court/judge allowing that........
check with the lawyer who handled the case for his/her opinion......as they have ALL the facts.
i suspect that must have argued that in chambers to the judge!
A: Seems like you are confusing civil and criminal cases. In a criminal case, the plaintiff is the State of California. In a civil case, someone is suing for damages and that person or entity is the plaintiff.
As far as jurors wearing the photo of one of the parties to the lawsuit; that would not be allowed by ANY Judge in California since the Jurors have to be "impartial" to both sides. Black lives matter t shirts may or may not be allowed depending upon the type of case. That would be up to the Judge. Certainly if there was a verdict by a jury wearing shirts with the plaintiff, it would be overturned on Appeal.
