Judge James Zagel gathered jurors in his courtroom to give them basic details of the case and of the historical significance of juries; now, he'll start questioning them individually.
The verdict in the case is very important to the parties in it, Zagel said, and so the jurors need to take it seriously.
"You will not be asked whether you like or dislike, approve or disapprove of any person here," Zagel instructed the prospective jurors. "You'll be only asked if you believe the government has proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt."
Four or five jurors are no-shows, Zagel says.
