Overdetention Class Action Lawsuit

Dec 14, 2020

ThemeVision conducted a large-sample online mock juror survey in a putative class action lawsuit filed by a group of persons who were held too long in jail after their court-ordered release. Mock jurors read a written synopsis of the case that presented key facts and arguments for both sides, viewed pictures of the interior of the jail, and made judgments about liability and the size of the damage award. Statistical analyses were then used to simulate the decisions of a large set of juries to provide sophisticated estimates of potential jury-level damage awards.
