The Wall Street Journal's legal editor offers a compelling portrait of the American jury system--and its decline--and outlines the steps needed for reform. Adler travels across America, interviewing judges, lawyers, and jurors, and reconstructs seven trails in detail/5.

The majority of the defamation cases are heard by a jury in the High Court. The jury determines both liability and quantum. Further, at present, they decide the level of the award with only very limited guidance from the trial judge who cannot, for example, suggest financial parameters for any award or draw comparisons with personal injury damages. Usually a defamation case will be tried by a jury. The exceptions are when both sides agree for the case to be heard by a judge without a jury or when the judge decides that a jury will complicate matters. This could be, for instance, because explaining the complexities of certain defamation cases to a jury of laypeople could be too time-consuming.
