-New Hampshire Governor Proclaims September 5 Jury Appreciation Day


Many thanks to FIJA New Hampshire State Contact and activist Dick Marple for securing the below proclamation from New Hampshire Governor Maggie Wood Hassan declaring September 5 to be Jury Appreciation Day. He has gotten many such proclamations over the years, but this one is particularly notable because through the hard work of activists such as Dick, New Hampshire passed a law last year requiring that defendants be allowed to argue jury nullification directly to their juries.
