"The American system of trial by jury is unique.  No other nation relies so heavily on ordinary citizens to make its most important decisions about law, business practice and personal liberty - even death.  Ideally, Americans take their participation seriously lest they someday stand before their peers seeking justice."

Stephen J. Adler, journalist and author
