Changes to Voir Dire in Massachusetts Superior Court

Earlier this month, the Supreme Judicial Court announced an interim procedure to implement Chapter 254 of the Acts of 2014 -- i.e., a new statute, effective February 2, 2015, which grants attorneys and self-represented litigants the opportunity to participate in juror voir dire in the Massachusetts Superior Courts. The procedure is set out in Superior Court Standing Order 1-15: Participation in Juror Voir Dire by Attorneys and Self-Represented Parties, and it takes effect on February 2, 2015.
