Petition of the day

The petition of the day is:


Issues: (1) Whether the Sixth Amendment guarantee of a unanimous verdict by an impartial jury (A) precludes a court from removing a juror during deliberations when the record discloses any possibility that the removal request stems from the juror’s views on the merits of the case and (B) precludes a court from questioning the jury when faced with allegations of juror misconduct that could be related to the merits; and (2) whether, as the plain text provides, Title III of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 requires suppression of all recordings made for the purpose of committing a criminal or tortious act.
