EXCERPT:
Jury nullification occurs when a trial jury comes to a decision which contradicts the facts of the case as presented in the trial. This is not limited to criminal law cases. Civil juries may also use the doctrine. But the appeals consequences are trickier in a civil case than in a criminal case. An appeals court may well overturn the jury nullification in a civil case.

In a criminal trial, the jury acquits the accused despite its belief that defendant committed the crime. For example, when prohibition was in effect in America, it was so unpopular that juries returned many acquittals, despite huge amounts of incriminating evidence presented by the prosecution at trial. If a defendant is acquitted, using Jury Nullification in a criminal trial, there is no appeal allowed under Double Jeopardy. So the nullification with an acquittal is the last word. This is why the criminal trials where Jury Nullification has been used are so much better known than their civill counterparts.
