The United States Supreme Court has held that the Equal Protection Clause prohibits a prosecutor from exercising peremptory challenges to remove jurors of a race other than the defendant's, and that a defendant has standing to contest such use of peremptory challenges although the defendant and the challenged juror do not share the same racial identity.
