Jury and Empire
My colleague Andrew Kent just uploaded his terrific paper on how the US territories were granted all the criminal procedure rights in the Constitution other than the jury right. His story of why is not a simple one of racism that others have told. Download it here for yourself to learn this interesting story told by a storyteller richly informed by primary sources few have uncovered. It is forthcoming in the Southern California Law Review.
