Though it was not the 1st Circuit, which includes New Hampshire, the Federal 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled that a New York man was wrongfully arrested for his Jury Nullification outreach. has the story. Explaining or advocating the right of Jury Nullification is not “jury tampering” as it does not advocate one way or another how a jury is to respond to any specific criminal case.

This has never been an issue here, as no activist advocating Jury Nullification has ever been arrested in New Hampshire. That said, the ruling is still worth noting.
