Hooray for New Hampshire

The free state now has fully informed as well as free juries:

New Hampshire's General Court passed it, and on Friday June 22, 2012, the state's governor of New Hampshire has signed it. The law of the state, at RSA Sec. 519:23-a, now provides: 

Right of Accused. In all criminal proceedings the court shall permit the defense to inform the jury of its right to judge the facts and the application of the law in relation to the facts in controversy.

For  more information and details on this restoration (in one of the nation's 50 states) of a meaningful right to a trial by a jury of one's peers (without it being compelled to follow the dictates of black robed oligarchs) see this full report.
