National Juror Rights Celebration Day was held in response to a capricious Florida judge who jailed a peaceful jury rights activist, attracting more than 100 supporters throughout the country. It shows that Judge Belvin Perry’s actions to violate the free speech rights of Mark Schmidter haven’t gone unnoticed.
Unfortunately, the nationwide event was held during a non-jury week at the Tarrant County Justice Center. So an event is being scheduled for the following week on Wednesday, March 20. We have held several local jury outreach actions in recent years, so we can go forward with a location that has been successful at previous outings.
Distribution material will be provided, but can be found on the Fully Informed Jury Association website here.
