What does the word Sequestration mean?
- 1 month ago
Sequestration is the act of 'sequestering' something. The verb 'sequester' means to isolate, or segregate. We hear this commonly used during high-profile trials, where the jury that has been selected is 'sequestered' for the duration of the trial. The jurors are usually given accommodations in a hotel; they cannot go home, or socialize, or read newspapers, or watch television. They cannot interact in any way with a medium that would publicize the trial, the evidence, or theories about the innocence or guilt of the defendant.

setting aside in a separate place. Isolation from a main mass, segregated in some way. Usually used to mean storage of some sort for some time period that would need to be defined in context. Restricted access to the sequestered item(s) is implied.

Besides its financial meaning of taking custody of funds, sequestration also has a sense of imposed seclusion, whether it be to keep a jury from learning of public comments, or even kidnapping.

It means being separated. For example, a jury can be sequestered while they are deliberating a case. They are not able to talk about the case or read about it.
