I won and got selected for a jury duty box for a criminal trial. Now waiting in the hallway, resisting playing the Sad Trombone sound as folks come out one by one and have to sit here dejected because their hardship claim was denied
@MikeyMcFilms I will almost certainly get booted when they ask about background (I have a bachelor's in computer science and my sister tells me analytical people get booted from criminal cases). But I would be happy to be on a case and be someone who doesn't take cops at their word.
@joeterranova i have gotten jury duty but have never been seated
for civil cases they always ask "raise your hand if you a) work for an insurance company b) own stock in an insurance company or c) are a lawyer
i raise my hand and say all 3
the lawyer thing has kept me off of criminal trials.
I was selected for Jury service over 10 years ago. I had to get exempted because I was, and still am, a single parent parent/carer to what at the time were 3 disabled kids, now disabled young adults.
