In July Eric Brandt and Mark Iannicelli were arrested outside of the Lindsey-Flanigan courthouse as they were distributing literature. The material was created by the Fully Informed Jury Association, a collective of attorneys who work to educate juries about their rights. The two were charged with seven felony counts of jury tampering.
Since then, there have been various rulings throughout the metro area regarding similar incidents but on Wednesday all charges were dropped in district court. The two are pursuing litigation for protection of their First Amendment rights to distribute the literature.
