Specialized courts vs. juries

[POLICY] Are some cases too complex factually for a jury of ordinary citizens to sift through? Or is the American jury the best factfinder for all sorts of cases? Would we get "better" results if we had professional factfinders for patent cases? How about medical malpractice cases?

An article in the Oregon State Bar Bulletin discusses the issue, with quotations from a jury consultant, a plaintiff's attorney, and intellectual property experts. Janine Robben, Who Decides? Specialized Courts vs. the Jury of Peers, April 2005.
