Batson Revisited (Symposium), Nancy S. Marder

Nancy S. Marder

I also embraced its expansion over the years. The logic of Batson was inexorable: just as prosecutors should not be permitted ...

The Myth Of The Nullifying Jury, Nancy S. Marder Jan 1999

The Myth Of The Nullifying Jury, Nancy S. Marder

Nancy S. Marder

Jury nullification, an issue that has received much public attention, has been used loosely to describe verdicts with which members of the press and public disagree.
