James Holmes Trial

There are other issues that correlate with the voir dire process.  In the James Holmes trial, the defense attorneys are attempted to move the trial to a different jurisdiction.  The attorneys were concerned about too much media coverage and prejudice in the current jurisdiction.  It is part of the attorney's job to have the trial conducted and have jurors selected who are as impartial as possible.
