The risk of unconscious bias in court

Some judges in Wyoming and around the country may be influenced in their decision-making by unconscious bias. According to some neuroscience research, people sometimes make decisions under the influence of unconscious assumptions or biases that they might consciously reject. Research has also shown that in the courtroom, judges often make decisions based on intuition rather than rationality. This can lead to defendants from groups who often face discrimination, such as black or gay people, receiving harsher treatment.
