Jury Problems and Law Problems

By Alex Tabarrok

Dear David,

I will make just one more point before signing off. I worry not so much about juries deciding cases wrongly as about juries deciding wrong cases. The problem, in other words, is not juries per-se but the combination of juries with the expansion of tort law into areas where choice, contract and legislation more properly belong.

Thanks David for a stimulating discussion!
