    sociopathic.. interesting thought. Theoretically they can wade through all emotional sticking points and stick to the law. When I last served on a jury, the back and forth was all emotion-based stuff. It was really tedious

    Yeah, you're right - sociopath would probably be the better in the situation. I was really just thinking of people with an absence of empathy. I wonder what attorneys/lawyers think about having such people on the jury

    I think they'd think "this is a person who cannot be won over with an appeal to emotion".

    Such a person might be great for one side, but likely quickly dismissed by the other.
