A New York attorney is taking the complicated process of picking a jury to a new extreme. He represents a suspected terrorist and asked a judge to keep Jews off the panel.
Inside Brooklyn Federal Court, attorney Frederick Cohn told Judge Eric Vitaliano, Im not wild about having Jews on the jury in this case, CBS 2s Steve Langford reported.
Abdel Hameed Shehadeh, a Muslim, is charged with making false statements in connection with a terrorism offense. His attorney told the court he didnt believe his client could get a fair trial if Jews are on the jury. For the record, Cohn is Jewish.
A 1986 Supreme Court ruling held that jurors cannot be excluded solely on the basis of their race.

I'd begin efforts to disbar Br'r Cohn ~ he knows better.
Judenfrei? Judenrein? Are these concepts recognized in American jurisprudence?
I guess he would be happy with an all Muslim jury.
Hey, it’d be a jury of his peers.
Okay, no muzzies, either........
All this endless crap coming out of my hometown. I’m beginning to finally see why so many other Americans look at us as freaks out of the sideshow...
This bullshit has gone on to long with these SHYSTERS. That's right, I said it it...shysters. Look it up.
not all of us look at you lot up north as freaks but we do understand as to why so many conservatives up there want out.
Just to make you feel better then I hope you remember that we know you’re surrounded by liberals and socialists and kids who think it;s all about them and them getting high or having sex with what ever is around.
Just don’t bring the druggie, homo, pro illegal , anti gun folks down here please we have had enough fo them as I;m sure the good folks of CO has from CA and other places
I know some very good people from NY State and the City. Must be hell for you. Born and raised a Southerner from Florida. I get my share of BS too. Doesn’t matter your beliefs or passions. People “group” people. Che Carro!
P.S. I don’t believe John Wayne was a Commie either :)
A Cohain? A guaranteed Jew is asking to bar Jews?
He's surely cattle-car material if ever there were one.
Sorry, my Italian is rusty. Che diavolo (Wtf)? Schiaffeggiare! (Slap!)is always appropriate!
Hang in there Miss Marmelstein! This Southern Irish Italian feels your pain :)
Hitler is looking up and smiling.
Guarantee he won’t get Jews banned, but you can bet there will be Muslims on his jury.
You don’t understand. Abdel might be so offended by having Jews on his jury that he might kill himself.
