-Jury Nullification and the Magna Carta

Share

Today is the 798th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta at Runnymede in England. Learn why denial of the right to trial by jury has stirred up dissent even to the point of revolution throughout the last 800 years. Lysander Spooner explains that the barons of England did not fight for an empty formality of having a jury rubber stamp the wishes of the king, but rather for the right of jury nullification which put judgement of the whole case on its merits into the keeping of the people rather than the king.

Please share this short video with family and friends to help educate everyone about centuries of history behind the traditional, legal authority of the jury to refuse to enforce bad laws.
