Runaway Jury

Factual error: Rankin Fitch's "team" has Juror Millie Dupree's husband Hoppy Dupree arrested as part of their plan to control Millie's vote. If you listen to the damaging evidence from Hoppy, he is saying "I can help you get that county permit, blah, blah, blah" This is supposed to take place in Louisiana, where there are no counties only parishes. This is a hold over from the John Grisham book that the movie is based on. That story took place in Mississippi where there are counties. (01:03:25)

Factual error: The film has the Civil District Court for Orleans Parish located in the French Quarter. Actually, that courthouse is home to the State Appellate Court and the State Supreme Court. The Civil District Court is located in a film-unfriendly section of town, on Loyola Avenue.

Factual error: In any of the courtroom scenes where you are looking at the judge, the American flag is on the wrong side. The flag should be to the right side of the judge. This was confirmed by IHA . (00:50:45)

Factual error: When the wire transfer is shown coming to the Cayman Islands bank, the computer begins to count up to 15 million, then the scene switches to a printer printing the report of the transaction then back to the computer finishing the transfer count to 15 million. The computer would not print the details of a wire transfer until the wire transfer was complete.

Rankin Fitch: Everybody has a secret they don't want you to find.



During the jury selection montage the judge says 'Enter Lydia Deets as a juror.' Moments later, her profile is shown on screen and the lawyers accept her and the judge says 'Enter Miss Deets as a juror.' she has been entered into the list twice.



When Dustin Hoffman and Gene Hackman have their showdown in the lavatory towards the end, Hackman greets him and says that this is a "long overdue pleasure." This is a reference to the fact that this scene is the first scene ever between Hoffman and Hackman, two former classmates at film school, in their substantial screen careers. Despite being in the industry for decades, and being long-time friends, they had never made a movie together.
