jun 25, 1764 - 1764 Admiralty Courts: These courts resolved disputes among merchants and seamen. These courts did not use the jury system, so a judge was the sole decider. Colonists argued that they lakced their "constitutional" right of trial-by-jury. As well, they presumed the defendant was guilty until proven innocent, so they prosecuted enemies of Great Britain with much power. -Defeat for the colonists
