Nullification is a great response by the public – which really has very little input into the legislative process – as a powerful way to send message to the powers that be that this is a dumb law.

Brian Foley’s latest Lawpaganda segment looks at jury nullification – the power of juries to acquit defendants based not on innocence, but on immoral or destructive laws.

Brian recommends you read the article Jury Nullification: Why Every American Needs to Learn This Taboo Verdict by Kevin Mathews at Truthout.
