Compare and contrast

Check out Slate's article about the jury that convicted George Huguely of murdering Yeardley Love. Then read Elie Mystal's account of being on jury duty in New York. Or vice versa. In either order they are both interesting reading.

  1. Okay, I'll contrast. Mystal was merely a prospective juror, so the gravity of the situation never pressed upon him. The Slate article was about the conduct of actual jurors serving on an actual jury. The article makes clear that they comported themselves with dignity, as jurors almost always do. Watching jurors step up like this was one of the great privileges of being a judicial law clerk.
