Batick v. Seymour

In Batick v. Seymour, 186 Conn. 632, 443 A.2d 471 (1982), the plaintiff brought a two count complaint for personal injuries against a defendant husband and for the fraudulent conveyance by the defendant husband to his defendant wife. The court reasoned that because the same jury would be used for the trial of the two counts, it was proper to allow both defendants to have four peremptory challenges each during jury selection, even though the defendant wife's trial would not take place unless the defendant husband had been held liable on the first count. Id., 642.
