The Laurel Leader-Call has published an article about the most recent film from The Constitution Project, Jury Selection: Edmonson v. Leesville Concrete Company. It includes interviews with Thaddeus Edmonson — The Leader-Call is his hometown paper – and Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center.
“I’m glad my case will be broadcast to students across the nation,” said Edmonson. “This case happened years ago. However, even after having to wait so long for justice to be served, I still believed in America. I still believe in the Constitution of the United States.”
