The new edition of the American Society of Trial Consultants The Jury Expert is out. I'll be paying special attention to Gail Herde's Take Me to Your Leader: An Examination of Authoritarianism as an Indicator of Juror Bias.

I think authoritarianism might be what I'm trying to get at with this scaled jury question; I expect to be able to improve on it with the help of the 1993 Kravitz & Block article from Law and Human Behavior, which Herde cites, that evaluates the reliability and validity of the Legal Attitudes Questionnaire, for a discussion of which see Posey and Wrightman's Trial Consulting (for a chuckle, also read the sole Amazon review of that book).
