    1. Bill,

      In “What’s A Judge To Do?” you seem to be unaware of a point of law: a defendant is not permitted to challenge a verdict based on his own bad acts in court. If he attacks a juror and prejudices their opinion of him, its’ considered to be his own bad act and therefore the verdict is not reversible on these grounds, barring some more subtle point.

    2. That’s a matter of common law rather than a legal precedent, though: The defense can argue that the jury was clearly afraid of the defendant and that the judge had a clear remedy (new trial). Appeals have been won on shakier grounds, as you know.
