I don't think a jury has to qualify a verdict with a judge.
A judge has to give a reason for his ultimate decision,but not a jury.
Thats my understanding.

But thanks for showing everyone in cyberspace what a clueless dimwit you really are.
WELL DONE GRASSHOPPER!
They are still obliged to follow what others say. The constitution limits peoples power and everybody doesn't have the power to make a decision without approval.

That may be true in your homoland; but in the USA it works like this:
.
In the case of a jury trial; the jury decides based on the evidence and the law
.
In the case of a trial without jury; the judge(s) decide(s) based on the evidence and the law
The Judge decides based on evidence and the public. People voted against it. He had no evidence either. Propositions are voted for.

Oh, try to pay attention. Mr. Lincoln and Mr. Speed slept in the same bed. Roommates. Good lord, you are dense. Lincoln didn't NEED a roommate, he lived in the freaking WHITE HOUSE, for God's sake.

Irrational thoughts are something you should fight against. They hurt you more than they hurt the people you fear.

I never said or implied a jury has to qualify their decision with the judge. But you are certainly correct that a judge has to have a VERY good reason for setting aside a verdict from a jury.

Who are you talking about here? There was no jury in the Prop 8 case Walker presided over.

If SCOTUS finds that Prop 8 is in fact unconstitutional then yes, grasshopper they misapplied the law.

From Mr. Speed's and Mr. Lincoln's diaries and letters, Cletus.

And NO one sleeps at the White House unless they are sharing a bed with the prez. Do you use the late Michael Jackson as a role model?

It depends whether it's a Criminal or Civil Case.

(btw: don't you mean "explain" rather than "qualify"?)

Since when does a judge make a ruling based on the "public"? Supreme Court judges base their decisions on the U.S. Constitution. If they ruled on the "public" abortion would still be illegal and segregation would be legal.

They were equal friends. He was allowed to sleep in the same bedroom. It would have been a double bed or queens bed, or kings bed, they would both fit without frottage.
