Voir Dire

Since Proposition 115, however, voir dire was conducted by the judge and –as the proposition had contemplated- tended to go much more quickly. Attorneys could supply the judge with a list of questions they wanted to see asked, but often these were ignored

Lawyers for the prosecution and the defense still had their twenty peremptory challenges- the right to dismiss a prospective juror for any reason whatsoever or no reason at all- but the empaneling of the jury was now much more outside the perceived control of either counsel. It was the judge’s show.
