This article examines the effects on the judicial system of entrenched stereotypes of the elderly. These stereotypes may be working to drive discriminatory laws, policies, and practices that serve to disenfranchise them of their right to participate in the judicial system by serving as jurors. The article also discusses the implications of this discrimination on the judicial system.
