I have my doubts about the author of the article, a Prof Renee Lerner.
One of the earliest alarm bells for me is in the title: "...the deceptive allure of nullification."
The next occurred in the fourth paragraph with her statement that the Bubonic Plague of 1348-49 upset the feudal system such that people were no longer tied to the land. The information I have from a British documentary is that the feudal system was still in place during the large Peasants Revolt of 1381. One of the peasants' demands was abolition of the feudal system which tied them to the lords who owned the land. Initially, King Richard II (14 years old), agreed to some or all of the peasant's demands, but then quashed an extremist wing of the revolt. And, then, having gained some advantage, hunted down the leaders of the wider revolt. The documentary didn't particularly say whether Richard II honored his initial concessions. So, I'm not even sure the feudal system ended in 1381, much less when Prof. Lerner says it did some thirty years earlier.
Also, I do not understand why she talks about civil juries, unless she is laying the ground-work to tar criminal jury nullification by asserting excesses of civil juries. At the end of the article she says prominent Americans came to regret civil juries and nullification. So what? Who were these prominent Americans? Were they Federalists trying to seize control of Congress for financial advantage? Were any of these regret-ers among those who perpetrated the lobbying scam and tax increases that led to Shea's Rebellion? Why would problems with civil juries--if there were injustices--make "the deceptive allure of nullification."
I think I shall have to go back and read the previous installaments (the OP article is third in a series). And, keep an eye out for each of the new ones as they come along.
In the meantime, there is a fast, easy way to learn about the importance of nullification: An Essay on the Trial by Jury by Lysander Spooner. If you read just the first section, you will know more about how trial by jury fits into the constitutional system than probably 99% of Americans. Definitely a must read for anybody interested in liberty.
I'll post a link and some excerpts in another post.
