Frustrated Jurors Frustrating Justice

Fascinating if totally predictable "these days" piece on mistrial by iPhone touches on what might be wrong with the so-called adversarial process to begin with.

It's all a bit of a sham - er - a legal fiction anyway, this process of carefully selecting what gets in and what stays out. Jury theory has never seemed really plausible anyway. Maybe other lawyers would disagree. But get them a few drinks and probably not.
