Jack Gerritsen[edit]

The addition on Jack Gerritsen doesn't really relate to jury nullification at all. This was a famous case (at least among the ham radio community) of somebody jamming radio repeaters. I don't know of any FIJA link to this at all except that he was a California state contact for the organization. He is apparently a longtime crank broadcasting political tirades on the ham bands, sort of the ham radio equivalent of a net.kook, who also is known for filing frivolous pro se legal filings against the Mexican government and a bunch of other stuff back in the 1980s. Any objection to taking this section out? Secret Squirrel 01:55, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Not from me, at least as far as the citation doesn't support it, as far as I Schlafly Skimmed it. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:17, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
I could see leaving it (but rewriting) if there was something where he tried making jury nullification the basis of his defense in the radio jamming case, but I can't find one. He was involved in one, involved in the other, but the two don't link. Secret Squirrel 03:29, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
