The Barry Bonds trial arrived in its San Francisco courtroom on Monday morning, and the first order of business was selecting a jury. It was expected that this voir dire process would run into Tuesday, but in something of a surprise, the whole process has been completed in a timely fashion. The numbers:
-eight women (two black) (six young)
-four men (all white) (all older)
So with that out of the way, the trial is set to proceed. Tuesday morning, after the jury is sworn in, each side will give its opening statement. The government has requested a block of one hour, while the defense has requested a block of one to two hours. Trainer Greg Anderson is scheduled to appear after the statements, but it's expected that he will refuse to testify, in which case Jeff Novitzky will be called as the government's first official witness.
