Abstract
Professor Shaffer maintains that the preservation of fair trial in civil cases requires an increased Bench and Bar effort to control prejudicial trial conduct. To support this assertion, he investigates sources of jury prejudice, available and proposed court devices for remedying inadvertent and intentional misconduct by trial attorneys, and appellate court avoidance of corrective sanctions.
