Weakest Batson Claim Ever?

What is the weakest Batson claim you ever heard?  This decision today in a robbery case from the Nevada Supreme Court is a good candidate: Orenthal James Simpson v. State.

The court also held that the trial judge did not overly restrict voir dire regarding the defendant's prior case that you probably heard about.

The judge's efforts to maintain order despite disorderly conduct by counsel for both sides in not judicial misconduct.  The court also rejects a number of fairly routine claims. A codefendant got a reversal due to the judge's refusal to sever the cases for trial.

Oskar Garcia has this story for AP.


I hope he's still looking for the "real killer."

Chances of success in that effort are now diminished. I doubt they allow mirrors in the slammer.
