"Jury nullification is a de facto and traditional power of juries, not normally disclosed to jurors by the system when they are instructed as to rights and duties. The power of jury nullification derives from an inherent quality of most modern common law systems—a general unwillingness to inquire into jurors' motivations during or after deliberations." - Wikipedia

What should one do? Attend. If selected, be mindful of your jury's authority to exercise jury nullification.
