The Justice and the Jury.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article examines the view of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun on trial judges and juries. It stresses that trial judges believe that juries give fair verdicts and would want juries to decide over criminal or civil case. For Blackmun, juries are parts of the democratic government, not as the protectors of the interests of defendants.
