Witherspoon excludables

prospective jurors who so strongly oppose the death penalty that they are unwilling to consider it as a sentencing option and are therefore excludable from a death-qualified jury. The allusion is to the 1968 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Witherspoon v. Illinois. See also Wainwright v. Wittwainwright-v-witt.
