    Called once and rejected when the defendant, acting as his own attorney, asked if anyone had relatives in law enforcement. Got home before noon. :)

    Live each day as if you're going to die tomorrow. Learn each day as if you'll live forever.

    I have been called on, twice. Once I was in Germany, last year, I was called and lo and behold, the defendant didn't show up.

    I just hope the case you're on doesn't include a Jooooooo as a defendant.

    I'd attempt to get out of it as much as I can. If I were ever in the hotseat I would definitely consider waving my right to a jury trial, to0o many dumbass results come from relying on a jury of your "peers".

    Probably a smart move by the defendent.

    Probably. I have a strong dislike for drunk drivers.

    Jury duty sucked today.

    I spoke the truth at jury selection so needless to say I was not picked.

    I have never seen so many losers and bottom feeding lawyers in one place in my life.
