-PorcFest X Jury Nullification Panel


This is a pretty lengthy video, but it is worth watching as it gets into fairly detailed information. Two quick highlights:
1. An audience member makes the insightful point that in every case there are two defendants. Not only is the individual accused of violating the law on trial, but the law itself is on trial in every case.
2. Bob Constantine, in discussing what needs to be impressed upon jurors in order to get a nullification, emphasizes the point that it needs to be made clear to jurors that the jury is not a democracy and that they are not required to come to a unanimous verdict.

Thanks to all the panel members for helping educate the community about jury nullification, and thanks to the audience member who brought FIJA literature to share!
