Thank you risveglio for showing this to the members. I, for one, was unaware of this very relevant pending case.Posted by risveglio (here)
A Jury Nullification win right in my backyard!
I too am a resident of the Corporate Socialist State of New Jersey.
As we are all well aware National Socialism (German Translation: Nationaler Sozialismus - the acronym is NAZI) has been converted to Corporate Socialism in modern times by the same banking families that promoted the Nazi Regime.
I point this out simply because New Jersey is among the most dangerous States in the Country with regard to the loss of personal sovereignty.
With no regard to the merits of this particular case, the shame of this very important jury verdict, here in New Jersey, is that this verdict will not become a legal precedent, in that any further juries will now be allowed to hear the jury nullification argument from a defense lawyer.
By not allowing this sort of testimony into his courtroom, the judge in this matter sealed the door to further cases being allowed to use this argument, i.e. a legal precedent.
In New Jersey (at least) every defendant is still 'on his own' when it comes to arguing for jury nullification.
This is my understanding.
