Daunte Wright Shooting Trial LIVE: Jury Selection, Day 2

Daunte Wright Shooting Trial LIVE: Jury Selection, Day 2

Yesterday saw the first four jurors seated; opening statements set for December 8

Welcome to our coverage of the Kim Potter manslaughter trial over the April 11, 2021, shooting death of Duante Wright in a suburb of Minneapolis, when then-police officer Potter accidentally used her Glock 17 pistol in place of her intended Taser.

Today the court under Judge Regina Chu continues with the second day of jury selection, after seating four jurors yesterday.  It is also notable that yesterday each side used a single peremptory strike to remove one prospective juror each, and another five questioned prospective jurors were dismissed for cause.  Judge Chu also informed the jurors that they should expect opening statements on December 8 and that she hoped to have the trial completed before Christmas.

I’d be willing to bet this judge is a diversity ‘hire’ of sorts

Eal Gray, seriuosly? I know you should make fun of the man’s name but come on.

this DA or prosecutor or whatever was part of the Chauvin trial too? Am I misremembering?

Why is there no coverage of the maxwell trial? I have come to this site for legal coverage since the Oberlin defmation case, and it seems like a glaring omission.

#30 clearly a woke black bitch. Get rid of her.
