A number of Hispanic potential jurors have appeared so it appears that the alarm was unjustified. Even so there still seems to be a disproportionate number of women in the jury pool. This could be very bad for George if overweight women are swayed by their disgust for his obesity, lack of charisma and just being plain boring.
The judge has agreed to sequester the jury, apparently because the trial looks like lasting 2-4 instead of 4-6 weeks. Why is there an understanding that the trial will be shorter? Could it mean that the “expert witnesses” will not be appearing.
