Even Knowing About This Law Might Prevent You From Serving On A Jury

Guilty or not guilty? Well, there's a third option you might not know about.  In the United States, if you are called to jury duty, (SSHHH!) you have the right to override the judge on what you want to hear from either side irregardless of what the judge may say.  (It's in the handbook that you do not get a copy of).  You have the right as a juror to bypass any order of suppressed information or evidence.  But that's Constitutional law, and we all know that the Constitution is nothing more than a piece of paper except when it can be used against us.
