Jury Selection Interesting Law

Did you know:

TCA 22-3-104 permits either party in a lawsuit to challenge for cause a juror's qualification to serve if:
1) The juror is drunk;
2) The juror has been drunk during the term of the Court; or
3) The juror is a habitual drunkard.

That could make a voir dire interesting. Imagine asking: "Who, if anyone has been drunk during the last (fill in the term of the Court here)?"
Of course, you might want to wait until seven of your twelve jurors tell you they have had a DUI conviction in the past!
