Attorneys have agreed to send questionnaires to potential jurors to quiz them on their beliefs ahead of selection.

A similar strategy was used in the high-profile trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who was convicted of murder in the death of George Floyd el mes pasado. In the Chauvin trial, a 13-page questionnaire was sent to the prospective jury pool asking about their political beliefs, knowledge of the case and other factors.

Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder said he wants to see the questionnaire for potential Rittenhouse jurors by Aug. 1. Jury selection will begin Nov. 1.
