Second, this Note will analyze and discuss the Powers decision. Third, this Note will attempt to ascertain the impact of the decision. Finally, this Note will suggest that while Powers marks progress in the right direction, there are other important questions that need to be resolved before the jury selection process will be totally free from discrimination.
