CASE ENTRY

United States v. Kleinman

A refresher on jury nullification from the Ninth Circuit: Judges may tell jurors that it is a violation of the law for them to acquit a guilty defendant if they believe defendant’s conduct should not be illegal. What a judge may not do is imply that jurors will face punishment for violating the law or that their verdict will be thrown out if they acquit.
