Currently, lawyers in federal court can discriminate against gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered individuals when selecting a jury to hear their client’s case. However, a new bill introduced in the United States Senate seeks to curb this practice.
A bill that would prohibit discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered individuals in the federal jury selection process has been introduced in the U.S. Senate.
The bill is named the “Jury Access for Capable Citizens and Equality in Service Selection” and is referred to as the “Jury ACCESS Act.” Senate Bill 3618 adds categories of “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to race, sex, national origin, color, and economic status as protected categories.
How do you feel about this new bill? Would you want your lawyer to be allowed to select a jury based upon these categories of classification?

"Overall, I had a great experience working with The Bradley Law Firm!! I would recommend Ryan and his team to anyone. Being involved in a car accident can be quite stressful and dealing with insurance companies can be even more stressful. Having Ryan in my corner lifted a huge burden off my shoulders and made this process much easier for me. They handled everything. Tina is great…she is awesome! She’s extremely patient and kept me informed throughout the entire process. The Bradley Law Firm team is very personable, easy to talk to, and a pleasure to work with."
