Suja Thomas: 'The Missing American Jury'

Town Hall Seattle says
Despite their significant presence in the Constitution, our county’s juries have been robbed of their power. This has been done by a legal system which forces plea bargains with harsher criminal penalties, places caps on money awards, and routinely issues summary judgments on civil cases. Law professor Suja Thomas says that this is not what our founders intended. The Missing American Jury explores how the jury’s authority has been taken and how it can be restored to its rightful position as a branch of our government. Discussing the value of juries beyond the Constitution’s requirements, Thomas explains the significance of juries worldwide and argues jury decision-making should be preferred over determinations by other governmental bodies.
