Anyhow...I'm curious today ~ have any of you seen one of these in action?
I've spent the last day and a half serving my first stint as a juror. It's an interesting process! Kind of funny ~ after we watched the introduction video and were taken into the courtroom, I found it interesting that the potential jurors were actually randomly selected by the clerk picking names out of a box. I figured I was safe, for sure!! When it comes to drawings....my name is NEVER pulled! The universe is funny that way...apparently my name is only never pulled when a cool prize is at stake.
And even then - there was a 50/50 chance that the lawyers would pass on me, too. Nope. I must have an objective face or something...?? :) After initially hoping I'd get out of it, however - I found the process interesting and felt a bit jipped today when they held us in the holding room for 3 hours only to tell us later that the lawyers worked out a plea agreement. I didn't get to deliberate or come to a decision at all!!! Ah, well. A learning experience, none-the-less.
Have any of you ever been called to perform your civic duty in a courtroom?
