As a result of the overwhelming reactions against the verdict in the Rodney King trial practice and trial advocacy from the Los Angeles riots, Administrative Law Judges, Geller and Hemenway, decided to put their own pre-conceived notions on hold and reviewed the evidence presented to jurors in these trials. Their search resulted in a hard-hiting and innovative exploration of the American jury system. This book demystifies jury service, enabling ordinary citizens to cut through legalese, understand the process and how you can contribute to improving it. The book asks all of us to examine our biases to see whether we can be impartial jurors. You’ll learn how changes in the jury system can empower jurors and result in greater justice for defendents, victims and the community.
