The MCBA Diversity Committee proposed a study to analyze the extent of underrepresentation by minorities on juries in New York.  The New York State Office of Court Administration (OCA) approved the study in Monroe County, and launched the study in January 2010.  The study analyzed two groups - jurors who appear for service and jurors who respond to the initial questionnaire.
