Mu'Min v. Commonwealth

In Mu'Min v. Commonwealth, 239 Va. 433, 389 S.E.2d 886 (1990), aff'd in part, 500 U.S. 415, 111 S. Ct. 1899, 114 L. Ed. 2d 493 (1991), the trial court inquired about a prospective juror's views about capital punishment. See 239 Va. at 445 n.6, 389 S.E.2d at 894 n.6. Counsel objected when the question was posed but did not object when the juror was sworn and seated. The Virginia Supreme Court found that the objection to the questions on voir dire was waived by seating the juror without objection. See id.
