The grand solid merit of jury trial is that the jurors ... are selected at the last moment from the multitude of citizens. They cannot be known beforehand, and they melt back into the multitiude after each trial.More John Wigmore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Trial by jury must be preserved. It is the best system ever invented for a free people in the world's history.More John Wigmore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Trial by jury must and shall be preserved! Amidst the throng of crude sacrilegisms ... that assail us nowadays in the legal sanctuary, none is more shortsighted, none more dangerous, than the proposal to abolish trial by jury.More John Wigmore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
... The popular attitude toward the administration of justice should be one of respect and confidence. Bureaucratic, purely official justice, can never receive such confidence. The one way to secure it is to give the citizen-body itself a share in the administration of justice. And that is what jury-trial does.More John Wigmore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Cross-examination is the greatest legal engine ever invented for the discovery of truth. You can do anything with a bayonet except sit on it. A lawyer can do anything with cross-examination if he is skillful enough not to impale his own cause upon it.More John Wigmore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
