    I had jury duty this week. 1 case was presented to us, and there were 24 people in the pool. A woman was charged with DUI and Driving to Endanger. One of the questions in Voir Dire was if we, or an immediate family member were ever charged with DUI. I was selected as juror #2 but we couldn’t get 6 more jurors to fill the panel. (6 jurors and 2 alternates)

    Actually, it doesn’t, necessarily. It literally means to “see what will be said”, and can be used for jury selection, but more generally it’s a “trial within a trial” to determine such things as the the admissibility of evidence, or the competency of a witness. As an expert witness, I’ve often had my credentials examined during voire dire. I once testified in a case where, after days of testimony, the other side tried to claim my client hadn’t put forward a case, because they hadn’t formally closed the voire dire, so all the testimony took place in voire dire and wasn’t trial testimony. Needless to say, the judge was not amused…
