Denver, Detroit Delay Jury Trials Until 2021

This week a judge in Denver, Colorado, suspended all jury trials there until at least January 2021. Jury trials have also been suspended until 2021 in Detroit, Michigan, and the state of Minnesota.

Host Peter O’Dowd talks Josh Landy, a defense attorney in Denver and treasurer of the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar, about the backlog this suspension created and what it means for the justice system.
