8:26 pm
8:27 pm
8:28 pm
it's sundays night and time-- sunday night and time for a leak ahead. the supreme course will tackle six cases ranging from legal issues. one of them deals with racial discrimination in a 1986 murder trial. the black defendant was tried by an all-white jury. there was racial coding next to the name of the jurors. more on that story now from robert may. >> reporter: according to prosecutors, tim thee foster-- timot timothyfoster broke into a lady's home. >> he is a young man who has intellectual disabilities. unfortunately he was tried by an all-white jury for a the murder of an elderly white woman. >> reporter: he was convicted of capital murder in 1987 and has
8:29 pm
been on death row ever since. now the nation's highest court will decide whether blacks were intentional aly kept off the jury. >> reporter: an open record request in 2006 was used to find out exactly what prosecutors had on their jury notes. what they discovered was startling. >> the trial prosecutor quote the letter v next to the names of the prospective black jurors. the names are also highlighted in green and a list of made of people that the prosecutor did not want on the jury. all of those people were black. >> they did not highlight anyone except the black jurors. they didn't mark v next to the white jurors names. >> rejecting a certain number of potential jurors without stating a reason is legal. foster's case is unique. >> have you ever heard of a
8:30 pm
prosecutor marking a b in their notes for black? sworn, that is it. >> for example, a juror excused, they excused because it was too close to the age of the defendant. white prospective jurors are closer in age to the defendant's age. >> if you look at a jury and it's all white people, and let's say there's an hispanic or black or asian that is the defendant, how could someone not say okay, we got a problem here?
8:31 pm
>> agreed, and that's always the opposing party says look, we have an all-white jury or black jury in a jurisdiction that is demographically diverse. >> reporter: kids are judge said saying wait a second, let's redo this. >> ask. >> in the 3-step process, we have the objection, the race neutral explanation, and the judge that weighs the credibility of the race neutral investigation. it doesn't work that way, levine says judges vary in how they take ta responsibility. prosecutors and defense attorneys are trying to think about what are there perfect jurors, who are the jurs to be perfect for the -- jurors to be perfect for the other side. that's the basis of the challenge, it's the reason people like marshall and others said we should get rid of the system. the cause are about people that have scheduling conflicts,
8:32 pm
health conflicts. >> reporter: not the colour of skin. >> no, or gennder, because that is decided as a prohibitive category. >> rarely does the course take on a supreme court. timothy needs five justices to rule in his favour, to grant race discrimination in the jury selection. we'll have more right after this. after this.
8:33 pm
8:34 pm
8:35 pm
back now, we are talking about a case and joining us from washington to discuss it. an attorney joins us. first, before we talk about the case before the court, explain what that is? >> sure, when you have a jury trial, each side gets a certain number of challenges to the eligibility of jurors, and you don't have to provide a reason. during the jury election each side can get rid of jurors 1, 5 and 7, for example, and they'll simply be accepted without probing inquiry into the reason.
8:36 pm
>> with respect to the foster case, there is some inquiry into the reason, because there was some marks next to the names of some jurors. what is illegal about that? under a case betton versus kentucky, a well-settled precedent. you can't use pre-empt tory changes for the purposes of stacking a racial deck. the most common example, time and again, and what is implicated in the foster case is when prosecutors try to empanel an all-white jury to try a black defendant for a crime. prosecutors know that that results in a substantially high probability of conviction, and part of the reasons for that are driven by racial bias. the supreme court held it was unconstitutional, that it violates the jury of one's peers, and you can have an
8:37 pm
inquire, the racial compigs being manipulated unlawfully. >> if the check marks were not next to the names of jurors, and the prosecutor excluded them without any racial reference, it would have been fine. >> well, it wouldn't have been fine, it would have been illegal. if he had a reason to exclude the jurors. a trial judge could accept them. >> this jury went through, and they heard the case, the trial happened. the result was appealed, so on and so forth. it was once later, once the papers were discovered that a new challenge was brought saying hey, the prosecutor denied that they did this, there's good evidence that this is what they have done. so now the case has gone autumn way up. the fact that the supreme court agrees to hear it lends credence to the allegations. >> we have the attorney joining
8:38 pm
us, a law professor is the the university of baltimore, and a writer on the supreme court for the atlantic. i don't know if you hear what we were talking about. if you were, here is a question for you about the fosters case. if, in fact, it rules in favour of foster, could the ruling apply retro actively, involving the use of racially tense juries. >> no. it's clear from the batson decision, that that is not what is called a landmark decision. >> okay. >> it's not what they call a landmark decision, and doesn't apply retroactively. it will put some of the trial judges in the death belt tapes, and don't just come to us with any lame excuses.
8:39 pm
>> let's look at some of the other cases. it looks at americans privacy rights and the ability to sue businesses over incorrect information. and looks at whether an individual can sue a company, even if there's no real troop that it harms the person. what is at issue here for the plaintiff and for the defendant in this case. >> well this is really a case that tests the ability of congress to authorise consumers to bring lawsuits against the large enterprises, not just in the privacy field, across the board. congress sets up a fair credit reporting act. inaccurate information about a person reported by a credit reporting agency gives rise to
8:40 pm
statutory damages, in the amount of $1,000. the statue says you don't have to prove that you were harmed. now, spokeo, the company says to the court you must cut this back, and say that the constitution does not permit these statutory damages in a case like that of mr robins. reported to have been wealthy and married and have several children when he was unemployed. he can't show monetary harm. and congress doesn't have the power to authorise the lawsuits. there's no question that what this case is about is cutting back on the ability of classes of litigants to bring actions against the big countries, google and a lot of internet
8:41 pm
giants are in this case saying we are too big. the suits cost too much and we are too big to be sued. >> is that a reasonable argument, that there is too much money at risk for the big corporations, if anyone sues because there's an inaccuracy for the report? >> it's reasonable in the sense that if the companies print large numbers, they may be subject to substantial liability. it's beside the point of the case. what it is really about is ordinarily under the constitution, you have to show that you were injured to bring a lawsuit in federal court. the question before the court is can congress say, okay, if this happens to you, you are injured, or is that a determination that congress can't make, and there are, on any number of statutes, privacy statues are a clear example, but there are other statutes, environmental, for
8:42 pm
example, where congress said people can sue if companies break the law, and seeing is important to the enforcement of the law. this is bigger than privacy. they have a legitimate argument that this is big, but it's the way it has been done. >> thank you to my guests for being with us on al jazeera. >> enjoyed it. >> thank you breaking the rules, but for a good cause. up next - why the n.f.l. is punishing players trying to raise awareness about very important issues. important issues.

post. the 62-year-old curry spent 16 years as a leader of the diocese of north carolina before being collected. >> n.f.l. under fire. critics accuse the league of fumbling the ball for not going far enough in promoting the cause of domestic violence. others say people should stop buying the pink merchandise. the n.f.l. has been cracking down on players who violate uniform rules that promote social causes. john henry smith has more. >> reporter: as the five seen running back, di-angelo williams wore eye black with the words find the cure printed on them, during the pittsburgh steelers october 25th game against kansas.
8:45 pm
on the same game, william wore the cleats, commemorating domestic violence month in both cases. they cried foul. the league fining each player 785,000 for breaking the n.f.l. uniform rules. >> pink is not a colour. >> reporter: williams lost his mother and four aunts to breast cancer. he is credited. they raise money for research by selling game-worn pink gear. >> when i was eight my mum died from domestic violence. the n.f.l.'s decision to fine the players comes in the wake of domestic violence, involving ray rice, greg hardy and others, leading many to question whether or not the league cares about women. when it comes to n.f.l. uniforms, the rule back states
8:46 pm
players are prohibited from wearing, displaying or conveying personal messages, unless approved by the league office. >> the league shows it will allow players to support causes, but only in ways it approved of. in october the n.f.l. fined another steeler pore than $17,000 for wearing eye black on two cakeses with the words iron and head on them. an homage to his late father, iron head haywood and died of cancer in 2006. >> the lead substantially reduced the bond after he agreed to promote cancer awareness by wearing league approved tackle cancer. williams requested that the n.f.l. allow him to wear pink. gay will not appeal the fine and popes the money will go to a
8:47 pm
domestic violence force. >> john henry smith, al jazeera. >> joining me from colorado springs is a psychotherapist who writes about football for the website "behind the steel curtain." thank you for joining us. n.f.l. says it supports breast cancer awareness, as it's trying to take a stuffer stance, but finds players that wear symbols a question to you. is the n.f.l. being consistent. >> unfortunately for the n.h.l. they had strict policies, and they are hammered out. they were able to enforce them. on the other hand it's in the hands of roger goodall. that's why you have players like gay, haywood and carol fined. and you have johnny mandell, and
8:48 pm
others with no consequences at all. >> di-angelo williams is paying for some women to get mammograms. do you know if the n.f.l. will apply the fines to an organization such as one that pays for women to get mammogram as opposed to putting them into the pot for retirement n.f.l. players? >> i know that is what william gay wants, he wants the fines to be donated to causes to support victims of domestic violence. i think the big problem with the n.f.l. is the support of women's issues is superficial. so they have pink cleats. as soon as a player wants to honour a parent, for cameron haywood's situation, his father, in those cases they are fine. it's not a lot of faith in the
8:49 pm
n.f.l. i think that's we're part of the disconnect is. >> you referenced my next question. is the n.f.l. serious about domestic violence. recently we heard about the instance of a player with the dallas cowboys. hardy. he was accused of strangling a woman. he was suspended for 10 games, it was reduced to four. he's back on the field. critics are saying is the n.f.l. serious if someone is accused of this kind of crime and then is allowed to play? not only is abd-rabbu mansour hadi back on the field, bus questioned action with the special teams coach. the owner said it's an example of inspirational leadership. that's why the question is again. you ju. toe pose -- juxta pose that with william gay. he lass a personal stories, his
8:50 pm
mother died as a result of domestic violence. it's hard to say the n.f.l. is not serious. as long as there's a cas , and people like greg hardy on the field. and exhibiting violent behave resource. it's a problem with the league, undermining commitment for the causes. the n.f.l., after the ray rice incident in which he was shown drainging his girlfriend out of the elevator, they fired three women to deal with allegations of domestic violence, and i read that these women are not permitted to speak to media. thank you very much for joining us on al jazeera america more than 50,000 runners from around the world participated in the 45th new
