In the spotlite: doctors who're studmasters

jurisprudenceI thought I would copy this quote from Clay S. Conrad which seems to sound favorably toward juror rights in nullification. It reads…

If jurors are not competent to judge the law, how could they be competent to vote for legislators who write the laws, or the judges who interpret the laws, or the referenda or initiatives that are on the ballot in many states?

If we believe that jurors are not competent to judge the laws after having every detail of the case, and after hearing the law and the facts argued and explained to them at great length, then we have to believe that judging the law is a significantly more difficult task than is required of voters, following whatever minimal investigation they have performed on their own. I do not believe that argument can be made with a straight face.

FYI because I'm using a html tag < bdo dir="rtl" >, it is possible to hi-lite the reversed text and copy it onto any text editor or word processor. This should display it from ltr. incidentally, a mirror would correct the direction of the words, but it will also reverse the letters. (i.e. the letter R will look like Я, the letter N would look like и, etc.)
