"Reinventing Juries: Ten Suggested Reforms," 28 U.C. Davis L. Rev. 1169 (1995)
No idea was more central to our Bill of Rights. - indeed, to America's distinctive regime of government of the people, by the people, and for the people - than the idea of the jury. Yet no idea today has suffered more abuse - from benign neglect to malignant hostility to cynical manipulation and strategic perversion - than the idea of the jury. The groups I blame for this sad betrayal - lawyers, judges, law professors, and to a lesser extent, citizens - are well represented in this room this evening.
