Flemington, NJ, February 23, 2007 — Results from a national focus group revealed that a clear majority of Americans (68%) believe that Judge Larry Seidlin’s behavior was inappropriate during the Anna Nicole Smith hearing.
The study was conducted by mediacurves.com, a service of HCD Research, during February 22-23, to obtain Americans’ views on Judge Seidlin’s actions during the Anna Nicole Smith hearing.
Among the findings:
Only one quarter of Americans (24%) reported that Judge Seidlin was acting “serious” during the proceedings, with 33% indicating that his actions were “humorous” and 27% reporting that he was “overbearing.”
Responders were also asked to their mouse to indicate whether Judge Seidlin was acting “judge-like” or “overbearing” during the hearing. The response curves, which can be viewed at mediacurves.com, were measured in quarter-second time intervals.
