In every deck of cards I checked, all the red face cards face towards the left, and all the black cards except the queens of clubs and kings of clubs face to the right.

So comparing the problem to a deck of cards:

Joe Clarkson right   Jack Clubs right
Karl Cole    left   King Clubs left
Victoria     right   Queen Spades right (only queen facing right)
Mary         left   Queen _ left (three to choose from)
Jeremy Davis right   Jack Diamonds left
Kevin Hill   left   King Hearts left
Elizabeth    right   No more queens facing right
Kenneth Darrall left   King Diamonds left
Jack Smith   right   Jack Spades right

That theory does not work for those two people. I'm not sure if that's because my decks are different from other decks, or if the problem has an error, or if the solution is something completely different.
