That would be interesting to get some "real data" on who is informed about the law.
Babb won't explicitly say he's there for the Silk Road trial. He's cagey because jury nullification activists have a history of being sent to jail for jury tampering.

Heicklin, whom Babb calls his personal hero, was eventually acquitted, with the judge remarking that it's only jury tampering if someone tries "to influence a juror's decision through a written communication 'made in relation to a specific case pending before that juror.' "
