RITTENHOUSE TRIAL: JURY BEGINS DELIBERATIONS
JONATHAN TURLEY: i didn’t like that moment, by the way, when [Judge Bruce Schroeder] allowed Rittennhouse to pull those names [of his final12 jurors]. That seemed to me more recreational than legal … He’s more of an idiosyncratic judge in that sense. I think he’s been treated unfairly. I think that his decisions for the most part have been right in the middle, right down the line. I don’t expect that he’s committed a reversable error on any of these issues, so I think he’s gotten a lot of criticism for no reason. I don’t particularly like having the defendant play that role. I prefer having the clerk do it.
