Jake Tapper has done an interview with him for Salon, but I can’t read it, not being a premium subscriber to that publication. Apparently Senator Edwards says, “I believe people who sit on juries are the same people who decide elections in America. Juries are a microcosm of America. People who don’t like juries deciding a case don’t like regular Americans.” As Walter Olson notes in his new book The Rule of Lawyers, trial lawyers are forever talking about how representative the jury is–and then working hard to stack juries so they’re as unrepresentative as possible. As Olson notes in an excerpt published in Reason, the same folks who say the jury box is like the ballot box are the most avid to keep out people who might vote the wrong way.
