Liza Lunt weighs in on First Circuit peremptory strike case

Liza Lunt is featured in a January 2, 2014 Massachusetts Lawyer’s Weekly article discussing the First Circuit’s recent decision in U.S. v. Mensah, where the court held that a defendant’s equal protection rights were not violated by the prosecution’s peremptory challenge to two Asian potential jurors. Lunt, the president of the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, is quoted as saying: “Getting more than one or two minority jurors is unusual . . . It’s often very hard to get a representative jury for your client if you are a defense lawyer in federal court in Boston. . . . This decision is going to make it even harder.” The full article is available here.
