    Lisa Blue Baron Introduces Her New Book and Podcast

    Lisa Blue Baron, a trial attorney at Athea Trial Lawyers, has had a prolific legal career that has made a monumental impact on the industry. She was elected President of the American Association for Justice in 2014 and has written multiple books that attorneys consider required reading including her 2004 book, Blue’s Guide to Jury Selection, the ‘bible’ of jury selection. In 2015, she was inducted into the U.S. Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame.
    She joins us on the pod to introduce her new book. Expected to be released in 2023, the book —complete with visual guides—aims to help judges improve their social and emotional intelligence skills and better connect with juries. The jury selection process is crucial to any trial, and the better a judge can understand and connect with jury members, the better that trial will be.
    Tune in for a sneak peek at some of the tips her book will include, as well as to learn about a brand new podcast Lisa is working on that will be featured on Lawyer Minds. The new podcast will be called “How to Be a Great Trial Judge” and aims to help judges improve their professional skillsets. There are key differences that set a decent judge apart from a great one.

    Lawyer Minds #29 - Continuing the Fight for the Sutherland Springs’ Victims w/ Jamal Alsaffar

    Lawyer Minds #29 - Continuing the Fight for the Sutherland Springs’ Victims w/ Jamal Alsaffar

    Jamal Alsaffar of Whitehurst, Harkness, Brees, Cheng, Alsaffar, Higginbotham, and Jacob, PLLC returns to the pod to discuss the most recent developments of the trial for the 2017 Sutherland Springs mass shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
    Tad Thomas and Mike Campbell first talked with Jamal about the case in August 2021, during the case’s liability phase. During this phase of the trial, the federal government was found to be 60% liable for failing to hold the shooter accountable for acts of domestic violence and threats he conducted before the shooting occurred. In Texas, that 60% translates to 100%.
    Earlier this year, a verdict for $230,000,000 was reached during the damages phase of the trial—an amount the government is fully liable for. Currently, the case is in the appeal phase.
    In the pod, Jamal discusses what the appeal phase looks like for a massive case of this nature, what the government’s options are and how the case was handled, and some of the implications of the case’s resolution. This case has been groundbreaking in multiple ways due to the way the courts have had to take a long, hard look at gun laws in our nation as well as the ramifications of a shooting of this size.
    Jamal also discusses the incredible complexities of the trial, which involved 26 instances of wrongful death and 22 injuries. The organizational complexities alone were tremendous. Learn how Jamal and his team structured the trial to present all of the pertinent information in the most powerful way possible to speak on behalf of the victims and their families and how Jamal fought with everything he had to ensure the victims received a fair verdict.
