On August 20, 2007, The Indianapolis Star profiled a collaborative research project between ThemeVision and Indiana University in an article titled, “Jury Study Prompts Guidance, Praise.” The study surveyed lawyers, judges, and jurors from 179 Indiana criminal jury trials. The Star article highlighted the study’s finding that “[t]he foreman’s initial viewpoint carries a lot of weight. Jurors also reported being influenced heavily by a member who passionately argued for acquittal, but not by those strongly urging conviction.”
