A jury has been seated and will begin hearing testimony Thursday in the William A. White case.
After a daylong selection process, 14 jurors -- all of them white -- were selected to the case. Two will be alternates.
Justice Department lawyer John Richmond objected when the only two black people on a panel of 38 were struck by lawyers for White, an avowed white supremacist.
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that jurors cannot be struck based on race alone.
But after hearing from White's lawyers, Judge James Turk said he was satisfied that they expressed race-neutral reasons in excluding the two blacks.
