On July 25, 2007, Inside INdiana published "IU Researchers Look at Jury Deliberations," which profiled research conducted by Dr. Stolle in collaboration with Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis on the quality of the deliberation process in Indiana criminal juries. The article highlighted the researchers’ finding that jury forepersons’ initial leanings were highly correlated with final verdicts. The article quoted Dr. Stolle, stating: "Jurors should not only observe what’s going on in the courtroom but should also get to know and observe the other jurors. When you are on a jury, selecting a foreperson is an important first decision. Don’t just elect a foreperson based on who pipes up first."
