2 Replies and 1874 Views R-20-0021 Revise Rules of Family Law Procedure to Lawfully Implement Juries   Started by Martin Lynch The People want juries to be applied only if necessary upon request of a litigant after the bench trial, because most Judges makes honest reasonable orders. The People themselves do not wish to produce Jury verdicts. We think the Courts should do that.
