“The law in the hands of the jury is the great equalizer. It gives the ordinary citizen the opportunity to obtain justice and gives the people – through the jury – the power to effect positive change for society. Power over wealthy corporations. Power over governments. The law, through the jury, gives the people power over the powerful.”
