    pass for cause

    Dear Teacher:

    Would you please tell me what does the phrase "pass for cause" mean when it is used in the court when trial lawyers select a jury. For example, "Pass for cause, Your Honor".

    Thanks a lot.

    It asks whether the lawyer wants to remove the person from the jury:
