NBC:

The trial begins today with jury selection, which could take up to two weeks because of the large pool of prospective jurors.

Just Security:

The length of jury selection is difficult to predict. It is highly dependent on the prospective jurors’ responses to questions asked, any challenges made by the prosecution or defense, as well as Merchan’s ability to keep the ball rolling (which he did in DANY’s case against the Trump Organization). Jury selection in both Carroll cases was complete within a day. It took an unexpectedly short three days to empanel twelve jurors in DANY’s prosecution of the Trump Organization and an additional day to choose six alternate jurors.

We expect a longer period here as the trial against the Trump businesses did not involve him personally, and jurors are likely to have strong feelings about him one way or the other. It is true that he was the defendant in the civil cases, and jury selection went quickly there. However jury selection in federal court is different from state court, and more jurors are needed in this criminal matter. Moreover, the estimated six-week trial may be problematic for some in the jury pool.
