Other mistake: Rankin Fitch and his associates are viewing the "Pledge Of Allegiance" scene, and Fitch tells Mr. Lamb "freeze it there" when Loreen Duke is patting Nick Easter on the hand. That camera shot should not exist. Where was the camera for that shot? None of Fitch's goons put a camera up where the Judge's bench would be, so where did that view of the jury come from? That is the only time Fitch et al view the jury from that angle.
Other mistake: 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.
Trivia: 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.
