2. how does pretrial publicity impact a case? can make it difficult to recruit jurists who have no impression of the defendant-particular his/her guilt or innocence. in addition, prospective jurists may be influenced by the public due to the fact that they may feel pressure to render a verdict which compliments their opinions because of the way their lives will be effected.

3. what is a gag order? used to lessen the impact of pretrial publicity. media can not publish or broadcast any prejudicial information about a case. this can apply to attorneys as well and can prohibit the appearance on various media outlets.

4. what is the purpose of a change of venue? a change of venue can be ordered to reduce the impact of pretrial publicity. those who have been selected to serve on the jury in the new jurisdiction have not been exposed to the same degree of pretrial publicity. however, this is very expensive.

6. identify reasons given for tort reform. tort reform refers to an action taken by a person or group to amend rules governing court actions in courts, which may include limiting monetary awards for prevailing in lawsuits.

arguments for tort reform include an increase in tort cases due to an increase in litigation in america; and jurors are not competent to deal with tort cases because they tend to sympathize with the plaintiff and tend to issue large rewards.
