In France, it happened and it was legal

Reader comment on item: Excluding Jews and Others from Law Courts

Submitted by Chemla Véronique (France), Apr 16, 2013 at 14:18

In France, before the trial start, only defendant' s lawyer is allowed to exclude people from a trial jury, and without explanation.

The retrial of 17 members of Gang of Barbarians started on October 25, 2010 before the Créteil Court of Appeal.

Me Léon-Lef Forster, lawyer of a member of that Gang, objected to several jurors, including two men whose names sound Jewish.A Jewish French radio and I noticed about that shocking fact.

Thus, that Judenrein jury gave a verdict in an anti-Semitic trial.

I wrote an article about that fact on my blog http://www.veroniquechemla.info/2010/10/le-proces-de-18-membres-du-gang-des.html
