Today I led a jury rights outreach operation in Dover. I was joined by fellow Rights Brigade member and all-around super activist James Davis.

Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to convict a defendant, not based on the letter of the law, but based on their conscience. The right to nullify is specifically protected by New Hampshire law. Jury rights activists pass out informational pamphlets in front of courthouses before jury selections informing jurors of this right.

This was not the first selection for this particular jury pool, so very few jurors were present. Still, we passed out pamphlets to those who attended, as well as others present entering the courthouse.

All in all, 8 jurors and bystanders were reached.
