Jury Nullification

This Saturday, August 31st and next Thursday, September 5th (Jury Rights Day-proper) there will be two separate events in Albany, NY for the purpose of promoting the right of jury nullification. For the uninitiated this is the right of trial jurors to render their verdicts based not only upon technical guilt or innocence, but their collective assessment of the morality of the law itself This Saturday’s event (8/31) will occur at Delaware Square Park from 2-5 PM and include a community BBQ and information tables. This small park is located where Lark St. meets Madison Ave. and turns into Delaware Ave. Next Thursday’s event (9/5) will take place at the Albany County Courthouse at 16 Eagle St. from 1-3 PM and consist of literature distribution.

The last time pro-nullification rights literature was distributed in Albany at any courthouse was when Julian Heicklen in late October, 2010 To view a video of the former event go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CV68ECk8_do ).
