The American jury system is the greatest form of justice ever devised by
mankind. In fact, juries are probably the most democratic aspect of our
Constitution. There is no other part of our Constitution that is so open
to the public, where ordinary people from all different backgrounds come
together to decide critical legal disputes based on the evidence presented.
Unlike most politicians, jurors make decisions based on the facts, not
the influence from special interest groups, lobbyists, or polling data.
Unfortunately, Ohio's General Assembly has stripped Ohio juries of
the ability to fully decide civil jury trials. In other words, decisions
made by juries based on their evaluation of the evidence are being trumped
by politicians who have no knowledge whatsoever about the case at hand.
We encourage you to watch the following video to find out first hand how
this rule is affecting Ohioans:
We believe jurors should decide cases, not politicians. We believe in individual
rights, not big government legislation. We believe in the fundamental
right to a jury trial as set forth in the Constitution, not laws that
strip individuals of rights such as arbitrary caps on damages.
