American actor Jack Klugman passed away at the age of 90 on 25 December. Among many other accomplishments, he is notable for his role as Juror #5 and having been the last surviving cast member of the original 1957 film edition of “12 Angry Men”.

This classic movie reminds us of the power and importance of a single juror’s vote and voice in ensuring liberty and justice for all. If you haven’t seen this film, we suggest you check it out. A screening with family and friends is a great opportunity to introduce others to the tradition role of the independent juror in our justice system!
