Wikipedia Plot

In New Orleans, Louisiana, a failed day trader at a stock brokerage firm shows up at his former workplace with a semiautomatic handgun and opens fire on his former colleagues, killing himself soon after. Among the dead is Jacob Wood (Dylan McDermott in a brief uncredited role). Two years later, armed with pro bono attorney Wendell Rohr (Dustin Hoffman), Jacob's widow Celeste (Joanna Going) decides to take the weapon's manufacturer, Vicksburg Firearms to court, on the grounds that the company's gross negligence led to her husband's death.

As the trial date draws near, jury consultant Rankin Fitch (Gene Hackman) arrives in town. He has an incredible talent for reading people and has used it successfully many times in the past. Fitch and his team are armed with a massive network of computers and backgrounds on each of the jurors in the jury pool. Using this, they communicate with lead defense attorney Durwood Cable (Bruce Davison) in the courtroom through electronic surveillance (a highly illegal practice) as they view the jurors and hear the answers to the questions put forth to them. This technology serves to create a "nightmare of corporate arm-twisting."[2]

In the jury pool is Nicholas "Nick" Easter (John Cusack), a happy-go-lucky electronic store clerk who tries to get himself excused from jury duty. Judge Frederick Harkin (Bruce McGill) decides to give Nick a lesson in civic duty and Fitch, despite having originally eliminated him from the list of potential jurors, tells Cable that the judge has sandbagged them, and that he must select Nick as a juror.

Nick's congenial manner wins him acceptance from his fellow jurors, with the exception of Frank Hererra (Cliff Curtis), a hardened former Marine of Cuban descent who knows as well as Nick does that there is a great deal of money at stake. Frank takes an instant dislike to him, which is not alleviated when Nick proposes Herman Grimes (Gerry Bamman) —- a blind man who displayed more legal knowledge than any when being selected —- as jury foreman instead of him.

However, there is something to Frank's suspicion that Nick has a hidden agenda. It is soon clear that he does have an ulterior motive, which somehow involves his girlfriend Marlee (Rachel Weisz). The two seem to be grifters, and try to offer both Fitch or Rohr the verdict they want -— to the higher bidder. Fitch asks for proof that they can do what they say they can do. This they try to give him in a number of different ways; for example, Marlee asks Fitch "feeling patriotic?" and the next day, as an indirect result of a suggestion of Nick's, the jury stands up and leads the entire courtroom in the Pledge of Allegiance. Rohr, on the other hand, doesn't buy Marlee's claim, thinking it's a defense tactic by Fitch to get a mistrial. Though Fitch is capable of pushing various jurors' buttons with subtle threats, Nick manages to hold them together.

Angered that an "amateur" may be even better at manipulating the jury than he is, Fitch orders Nick's apartment raided; Doyle (Nick Searcy), Fitch's man for such tasks, copies the hard-drive of Nick's computer. Nick returns and surprises him, but after a struggle Doyle manages to escape. Marlee retaliates by getting one of Fitch's jurors bounced. Fitch, then goes after three jurors with blackmail, leading one of them, Rikki Coleman, to attempt suicide. Nick, who had hidden
