Who said that juries are only . . .

"It is the enduring union of judge and jury in the process of fact finding that has made the American trial system the envy of the world and has conferred upon its judiciary the moral authority that has given birth to trial-level constitutional interpretation-a jurisprudence unique in world history." Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary v. QLT, Inc., 495 F.Supp.2d 188, 194 (D. Mass. 2007)
