A group of illuminated signs that have popped up near D.C. Superior Court touting the rights of jury members to "nullify" a law they disagree with has sparked a debate over whether the sign is an expression of free speech or an improper attempt to tamper with the legal system.
"While an argument can be made that the entity paying for the billboard is doing nothing more than exercising its First Amendment right, an ethical issue could arise if [a] defense counsel were found to be financially supporting one of these not-for-profit groups for the purposes of aiding in the defense of a client," Mr. Ochs said.
Although he does not see it as a problem now, Mr. Ochs added, "I think it is something that is going to have to be addressed."
