Fwd: Jury Tampering Trial Discontinued

Great news.


Professor Julian Heicklen, former defendant in USA v. Heicklen, previously under misdemeanor indictment in the Southern District of New York is pleased to apprise the public that Preet Bharara, US Attorney, appears to have in fact abandoned active pursuit of the prosecution, perhaps since discretion may be the better part of valor, and sub silentio, it seems that the US have conceded the first article of amendment to the US Constitution includes the unfettered right to discuss among and with our fellow Americans the meaning of the terms of art in the Constitution such as a criminal trial, a jury, an impartial trial, the jury de medietate linguae, and other important civil rights, without fear of being accused of attempting juror tampering because one attempts to engage their fellow Americans in a thoughtful and impassioned academic discourse on these complex constitutional questions, without segregating and excluding potential jurors from those who may otherwise enjoy the benefit of such a rigorous public policy and legal debate.

As a catalyst for an inclusive, tolerant, liberal America, it is a pleasure to note this important civil rights victory, and express our entire global defense team's proud appreciation for the noble decision of the United States Attorney to in effect nolle prosecui the improvident indictment.
