This week Julian Heicklen is expanding his jury rights pamphleteering tour to New Jersey, multiple locations in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Today Jim Babb and I joined him at the federal district courthouse in Trenton, New Jersey. We were only minimally hassled and managed to hand out 200 pamphlets before we retired to lunch. Tomorrow we’ll be in Reading and Allentown, PA. Today’s video is also available on Vimeo.
