If you think implicit bias in the courtroom may be at issue in your next federal trial, consider filing a motion, asking the court for permission to do the following:
(1) Use a case-specific juror questionnaire that includes questions geared towards uncovering racial prejudice and implicit bias;
(2) Play this Western District of Washington juror orientation video on implicit bias to potential jurors;
(3) Give a preliminary instruction to potential jurors about implicit bias (also based on the W.D. Wash. materials); and
(4) Permit 30 minutes of attorney-led voir dire, including questions based on the What Would You Do?
