Lysander Spooner on Jury Nullification Ep. 56

It’s been too long since I’ve done a solo episode. For this one, I hop on the mic for the first installment in a new series focusing on trial by jury. Using Lysander Spooner’s “Trial by Jury” as a framework, this series will explore the simple fact that juries have the ancient right to judge both the facts and theĀ justiceĀ of the laws. This first episode introduces the fundamental importance of that fact.
