Voir Dire

Meaning, “to speak the truth”. A vior dire examination usually refers to the examination by the court or by the attorneys of prospective jurors, to determine their qualification for jury service, to determine if cause exists for challenge (i.e., to excuse) particular jurors, and to provide information about the jurors so that the parties can exercise their statutory preemptory challenges (objections to particular jurors without the need for any cause to be stated). A voir dire examination during the trial refers to a hearing out of the presence and hearing of the jury by the court upon some issue of fact or law that requires an initial determination by the court or upon which the court must rule as a matter of law alone.
