The Psychology of Judicial Decision-Making: Ingroup/Outgroup Biases in Juror Verdicts and Sentences

This paper explores a juror-plaintiff relationship to show that biases pertaining to the plaintiff's group status (ingroup vs. outgroup) can affect sentencing decisions with regards to the defendant. We also demonstrate that this bias can be mitigated, or even reversed, by increasing the perceived credibility of the plaintiff.
