‘Tis the Season “ForGiving”
During the holiday season spirits typically are running high, and thankfulness and generosity abound. Our author poses the question, can this holiday spirit visit juries, and affect the way holiday criminal and civil jury trials are decided? And the answer might be “yes.” This white paper reviews the idea that jurors may display generosity in their assessment of guilt or punishment, as well as be more giving with damage awards during the holiday season.
