What would the U.S. legislature have to pass before denying a person apublic trial with an impartial jury?
It would be against out constitution to deny someone a public trial with an impartial jury.
I thought we already do that.
The U.S. legislation would have to pass a conviction through the jurors, who may be biased on determining a case. The defendant may therefore not challenge a conviction because a challenge for a cause was denied incorrectly.
They can't, it would have to pass the American people first
The right to trial by jury of peers, and to Habeus Corpus, are constitutional rights. It would have to be a constitutional amendment.
