The Court of Appeal of the State of California, 6th Appellate District, found that the trial court's suggestion that jurors role play each other's positions didn't cause them to "abandon a focus on the evidence as a basis of their verdict." Whaley's appeal was thus dismissed. See: California v. Whaley, 152 Cal.App.4th 968, 62 Cal.Rptr.3d 11 (Cal.App. 6 Dist., 2007), review denied.
