Quote of the Day
The only real lawyers are trial lawyers, and trial lawyers try cases to juries.
While in the Florida legislature, I strongly opposed the Stand Your Ground law because I believed it would provide defenses to people who had created the scenarios they sought protection from. Or it would leave juries without the proper rules of engagement that ought govern predictable human interactions.
From childhood on, I did sit in the courtroom watching my father argue cases and talk to juries.
But for their right to judge of the law, and the justice of the law, juries would be no protection to an accused person, even as to matters of fact; for, if the government can dictate to a jury any law whatever, in a criminal case, it can certainly dictate to them the laws of evidence.
I don't like juries having the wool pulled over their eyes. I don't think that's what the Constitution is about.
Black jurors sit on juries every day and convict black people every day.
Despite the generous rewards that state juries dole out, in many cases, victims receive less than 50 cents on the dollar in settlements with the lawyers taking the rest. This is not justice.
Juries are not computers. They are composed of human beings who evaluate evidence differently.
There are some who think that the government is limited in how many corruption cases it can bring against Wall Street, because juries can't understand the complexity of the financial schemes involved. But in 'U.S.A. v. Carollo,' that turned out not to be true.
'CSI' has not only remained a top-rated show through seven seasons; it has had real-world consequences. Police and prosecutors complain of a 'CSI' effect' that leads juries to demand more physical evidence than they used to expect. College officials use the same term to describe spiking enrollment in forensic-science programs.
Believe it or not, there are people who want to be on juries.
I have had it with people who are threatening me and my kids and my family over simply commenting on the law and criminal procedure, and respecting juries. Because they do work hard. They work way harder than I do; and they work way harder than the rest of those people making those peanut gallery comments.
I lost court cases and misdemeanor juries, but of felony jury trials I was successful 105 of 106 times.
Yeah, I lost court cases and misdemeanor juries, but of felony jury trials I was successful 105 of 106 times.
I hated cracking the whip, and these juries turn into political things.
Religious people today are courts and juries. When it comes down to it, Jesus died on the cross so that we could learn to love others like we love ourselves, not judge them or persecute them.
Tammy Faye Bakker
I felt grand juries were illegal and coercive.
It is apparent, if you go back through our history, that the grand juries of the criminal justice system do not value black lives.
William Lacy Clay, Jr.
If we believe in our current penal process, then the penalties imposed by judges and juries should be the only sanctions for one's crime, not the invisible sanctions of the legislature.
Charles B. Rangel
Putting pressure on grand juries to indict in my view is un-American. A grand jury should be allowed to be fair and impartial. They shouldn't have people yelling and screaming.
I've served on five different juries, and many of them were bonkers in their own way.
I'm trying to read more dead people because I keep having to read stuff for juries and so forth.
Interviews, and hence interviewers, are there to help shed light, and to let viewers judge for themselves. We are not judges, juries, commentators or torturers - nor friends, either.
Juries must, of necessity, be governed, in reaching many results through inferences from other facts, by certain laws of nature and human reason. They are often obliged to infer one thing from another, and this, whether that other be a fact direct or circumstantial.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
