So uh, Jim, where did you get you law degree? But seriously, my god, that was a tough article for me. How long did you work on that? I must say that you are superb when it comes to organizing information.
The whole story demonstrates how jurors are not always the brightest people around.

Yeah, that was a bit of work to put together. The more I read on the subject the more interesting it became, and I wanted to tell the story. It took several weeks to intermittent work to get the thing finished.
Much of the history is told in legal filings, but they get cluttered up with a lot of references and citations and precedents, so the flow of the story gets a bit disturbed.
What I have found is that despite the general perception by the public of our legal system as being a hopeless mess, in this case it did seem to me that the process worked.
The summary may be a bit tilted toward Brunswick's point of view; I did not have the benefit of being able to read the boatbuilders' brief.

As much as I hate the thought that our legal system allows for a judge to throw out a decision brought by a jury, it is indeed, sometimes, the prudent thing to do. Our basic principles for jurisprudence says that we should be "judged" by a jury of peers. Unfortunately, that is not always possible. Here is a case where that proved to be true.
