Shades of O.J. -- Casey Anthony Verdict May Affect Settlement Negotiations In Jury Cases

For years it was a common refrain for mediators and attorneys in L.A. to persuade clients to settle before trial with statements to the effect that "remember, your case will be decided by the same jury pool that decided O.J. Simpson wasn't guilty -- no matter how good you think your case is absolutely anything can happen in a jury trial."

It wasn't a Los Angeles jury this time but it appears that Casey Anthoy may be the new poster child for jury irrationality.  In fact, O.J. prosecutor Marcia Clark thinks the Casey aquittal is even worse.  I think she may be right.
