Defendant in Grant Wayne Krieger v. Her Majesty the Queen on charges of trafficking marijuana, which he claims was for medical purposes - for himself and others. He was acquitted by his first jury, but the Alberta Court of Appeal dismissed the verdict. At his second trial in 2003, the Queen's Bench judge compelled the jury to convict him, even though at least two jurors were opposed. The Alberta Court of Appeal upheld the verdict. The Canadian Supreme Court, in a 7-0 judgment on Oct. 26, 2006, overturned Krieger's conviction, ruling that jury nullification was legal.
