Jury Pool Selection
VAWA 2013 includes a requirement that tribes exercising SDVCJ guarantee the right to a trial by an impartial jury that is drawn from sources that “reflect a fair cross section of the community” and “do not systematically exclude any distinctive group in the community, including non-Indians.”
This is a new requirement that will require many implementing tribes to revise their current jury selection processes.
