The defense attorneys can also go after individual jurors and subpoena their personal medical records if they think any of them could have had a physical or mental disability—disclosed or undisclosed, like a vision, hearing or cognitive impairment—that might have kept them from hearing, seeing or understanding any of the testimony adequately. Defense attorneys can also go after individual jurors if they can find reason to assert that any answer on a juror’s questionnaire could potentially be false. In that event, the defense can also subpoena jurors’ tax records, employment records, divorce records, driving records, criminal histories, etc.  Lawyers are not supposed to keep juror questionnaires, but the Blagg case has shown that defense attorneys do, in fact, secretly copy these questionnaires and keep them for potential use in later attempts to get new trials for clients who have been convicted of serious crimes. Neither the courts nor the Jury Commissioner disclose to jurors the potential for this kind of invasion into their personal lives as a result of serving on a jury.
