More than 120 potential jurors were dismissed Monday from the federal court trial in Brooklyn, where Shkreli faces eight counts of securities and wire fraud related to his two hedge funds and the drug company Retrophin, reported the New York Times.
On Monday, potential jurors in the trial ruled themselves out, saying they would be unable to be impartial when reaching a decision regarding the innocence or guilt of the former pharmaceutical executive in a fraud case. Mr. Shkreli raised the drug's price to $750 a tablet, from $13.50, overnight in 2015 while running Turing Pharmaceuticals.
"I'm anticipating an article, a piece, that will further complicate the already complicated job of defending someone people feel so strongly about", Shkreli's attorney Ben Brafman said.
Even with his federal securities fraud trial set to begin Monday, Martin Shkreli has blatantly defied his attorneys' advice to lay low.
Cosby alternate juror: I 'probably' would have convicted him
The judge declined to do so while the trial was going on, but indicated he would consider releasing the names after the trial. It has also been reported that the prosecution may bring up Constand's sexuality in their second attempt at convicting Cosby.
"From everything I've read, I believe the defendant is the face of corporate greed in America", another prospective juror said, according to CNBC.
Another was sent home after confiding that when she saw Shkreli sitting at the defense table, "I said in my head, 'That's a snake'".
He is accused of fraud relating to a drug company he previously headed, Retrophin, and a hedge fund, where he was a manager.
Barring a pool reporter, the lawyer said, "Will not stop people from having bad views of Mr. Shkreli".

Some, like strikers Sandro Wagner and Lars Stindl, have had to wait until their late 20s to get a chance in the senior squad. Against Germany we let one through in the first five minutes - not ideal but at least slightly less embarrassing.
In court, Brafman railed against coverage from the New York Post in particular, which he said had portrayed his client as a "reviled price gouger".
Only one potential juror seemed to side with Mr. Shkreli: a woman who said her former husband had a medical-supply business that dealt with the stock market.
Prosecutors and defense lawyers agreed to strike more than a dozen jurors for cause based on their opinions of Mr. Shkreli. About two-thirds of roughly 90 prospective jurors questioned in the morning session were dismissed. Nevertheless, Shkreli has the right to have jurors who aren't biased, he said. Many were excused because of work, vacation and other engagements. But if the first day of jury selection is any indication, he's unlikely to have much luck finding average citizens who can maintain a neutral stance on the controversial life sciences investor.
