Jury Selection in Record Time

The 12-member panel for the Michael Jackson trial has been selected with attorneys on both sides finished much earlier than expected. In session only two days since Jackson's hospitalization for a "flu-like illness", jury selection was expected to take about five weeks. What we know so far:

Men: 4
Women: 8
Youngest: 20 (female)
Oldest: 79 (female)
Ethnicity: 3 Hispanics, 8 nono-Hispanic, 1 Asian (no African Americans)

Judge will now start ruling on the motions pending including one from the defense calling to introduce the litigation history of Jackson's accusers. (I'll try to find a list of the other motions for the play at home game.)
