This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
JuryStrike was created as a tool to help trial attorneys more effectively select juries. Each new case can be customized to reflect the actual jury panel. All questions can be customized and the responses of each potential juror tracked to ensure appropriate follow-up during individual questioning process. After the process is completed, the attorney can strike the final jury on the touch screen.
-Customizable juror profiles with ability to take and save notes for later reference.
-Touch interface to ensure easy and accurate tracking of juror responses to questioning.
-Ability to save all voir dire questions and customize the questions for each new case.
-Touch interface to show which jurors have been struck by plaintiff, defendant, or by Court for cause.
-Ability to seat final jury in box at touch of a button.
What's New in Version 1.2
• The jury seats on the Strike Jury tab will now change colors to correspond with the green and red thumbs up and thumbs down indicators within Individual VD.
• The juror's name will now display at the top of the screen when their number is tapped within the General VD tab
Great App and the developer is very responsive with any suggestions
I have left several comments on this App. My first comment listed there was a glitch and also listed several suggestions on how I thought the App could work better. Within days the developer contacted me and stated there is an update coming out soon that would resolve the glitch and true to her word, within weeks it was resolved.
She also stated with her initial response, she hopes to start working on another update that would incorporate my suggestions. Again true to her word, the latest update came out today and has all the features included that I had suggested.
Thus, during general Voir Dire, when you tap a potential juror during any general question, that person's name shows up at the top of the screen. You no longer have to remember which potential juror raised their hand. Also in the update, when you give a potential juror a thumbs up or a thumbs down that individual changes color on the jury strike page. You no longer have to switch between the pages.
The first time I used this App, it made selecting the jurors very organized and easy. There were no major problems. The other lawyers and court staff were very intrigued by this app and the way it simplified everything. With the new update, I cannot wait to use it in my next trial.
Great App But Could Use Some More Variables
This is a great App but it needs to have the ability to select for cases with a six person jury and with less than 10 people per row. For instance I am presently trying a misdemeanor case with a six person jury plus an alternate. Our court room seats two rows of 7 and a row of 4.
