Would you like a massage with that gift card, too?
From the Daily News:
At Manhattan Criminal Court, judges are being urged to watch their language — avoiding legal jargon, calling people by their name rather than “the defendant,” and greeting people when they enter.
Defendants will be surveyed on their experience at court — and get a $15 Dunkin Donuts gift card for filling out the questionnaire.
The city is picking up the tab for the program, which totals $800,000.
The gift cards are being given out because research ethics boards frown on having people participate in research without compensation, Mansky said.
I could go off on this in the textbook QC way, but Impunity City already did a fine job of it.
