Trail by Jury (for Trial by Jury)

Americans might not give much thought to their right to a trial by jury unless they are accused of a crime. But the experience of serving as a juror on several insurance cases made me aware of the process in all its tedious glory. Fancifully, I imagine that a trail by jury is the path worn by stampeding citizens after the judge thanks them for their service and tells them they’re free to go.

Trail by jury is a typo of low probability and appears 2 times in OhioLINK when searched as a phrase.
