Johannes_Vermeer_-_A_Lady_Writing_a_Letter_-_WGA24650In a Letter to the Editor of The Daily Mining Gazette, Larry Korpi urges Michigan to follow New Hampshire’s lead on jury nullification law.

Michigan should follow N.H.

Michigan, like the other states, holds justice in contempt by court.

But not in the “live free or die” state, in New Hampshire, who passed a law requiring judges to instruct defense attorneys to inform jurors of their right and duty to judge the law according to their conscience, that bad law be nullified with a vote of not guilty, bringing back constitutional government with we the people being the fourth and final check for the protection of liberty and justice for all.

Sadly, a law has to be passed to make courts do what we always expected them to do, protect liberty and provide justice for all. Hopefully, Michigan’s legislators will follow New Hampshire’s example.
