Lies of Drinking and Driving Billboards

Grits for Breakfast posts about how the glut of those "drink. drive. go to jail" billboards contaminate jury pools. He correctly asserts that defense attorneys have long railed against such ridiculous ads. However, he is incorrect that it's a recent trend that we have hypothesized that it taints juries. I first posted about this in 2004 but made the argument that it contaminates jury pools in a post from 2005 where I stated "that lying about the law does a lot more to damage the jury system than most people think it does."

Perhaps I should resume posting more substantively to get back on the radar?
