United States v. Polouizzi: District Judge Praises Nullification
« on: February 07, 2010, 02:17:14 pm »

Judge Jack Weinstein Again Sings the Praises of the Jury’s Nullification Power
Quote
Each Article III judge is granted the responsibility to interpret the Constitution as he or she understands it. History confirms -- what the Supreme Court has now held of sentencing generally -- that the jury's power to ameliorate the harshness of the law is built into our system of justice. The Sixth Amendment's right to a jury trial was designed to confirm the opportunity and power of the community (speaking through its cross-section of the petty jury) to forgive, condone or mediate punishment under special circumstances warranting that grace.

Thought that might be of interest.
