"Iloilo Jones of the Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA) said that she 'applauds the actions of the Missoula jurors, but not the government label of 'mutiny.'' Jones elaborated, 'Jury veto, or jury nullification, is the lawful vote of the People to prevent government employees from enforcing bad laws.' And that's sort of what happened in Missoula on December 13 when the prosecution asked the jury pool if they could prosecute a person for possessing as little as 1/16th of an ounce of marijuana. The resounding answer, from one person after another, was 'No!'" (12/25/10)
