Boston criminal defense attorney Brad Bailey joined WBUR’s David Boeri for this story. Brad has extensive experience with jury selection, having participated in selecting juries for over 100 trials. Brad and David discuss for cause excuses, peremptory challenges, the limited pool of potential jurors, and how all these issues factor into selecting a jury to try Dzhokhar Tsarnaev for the Boston Marathon Bombing.

BOSTON - As jury selection proceeds in the terrorism trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 52 potential jurors have appeared in court to answer questions about whether they could fairly consider the evidence.

More questioning is set for Wednesday.

WBUR's David Boeri is following the trial and joins Morning Edition with a report on the jury selection process.

He says several people appear to have passed this second cut of jury selection.
