The trial in People v. Michael Leary was assigned today to Judge Ben Davidian in Department 37 of the fifth floor of the Sacramento Superior Court at 8th and H streets.

The lawyer convene with the judge at 1:30 p.m. to layout out the procedures. Juror-candidates will next be given questionnaires to fill out.

After that the lawyers will review them overnight with the jurors returning, probably tomorrow, for voir die -- the “see and tell” process on which he lawyers decide which jurors to select.

Some judges sit on Friday, but it is not yet clear if the trial will then continue Friday or start on Monday.

The Leary fraud trial is expected to last about four or five days with the length of the following jury deliberations always a mystery.

At this point a verdict is not likely until sometime early in the following week.
