Topic - Fully Informed Jury Association

The Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA) is a United States national jury education organization, incorporated in the state of Montana as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. FIJA works to educate all citizens on their authority when they serve as jurors. FIJA educates the public, provides commentary on current jury-related cases, and assists defendants with jury authority strategies—including the right to veto bad laws and the misapplication of laws—by refusing to convict the defendant. The organization was formed in the summer of 1989 by Larry Dodge, a Montana businessman and [http://fija.org/about/history/ former Chair of the Montana Libertarian party], and his friend Don Doig. They formed FIJA following discussions about forming such a group at the [http://fija.org/about/history/ National Libertarian Party convention in Philadelphia in 1989.] - Source: Wikipedia
