    When your retired that 19 dollars a day is fine. When your still working and you lose your 160 it sucks.

    I've been on a list, but never close to being selected. Our county has a convoluted system where they send you a group number (i.e., group 5) and tell you what dates to call. You call the phone number they give you, and a recording says, "Today's groups are 1,3,6, and 8". So group 5 doesn't go. My group has never been called.
    I wonder if I'd be excluded anyway, for having once been a law librarian. I still know how to Shepardize a case. :)

    I actually lost $1,000 today because of my part time consulting job. I passed up a full day of billing.

    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.

    How was the carpet at the CourtHouse? See anything you liked??? ;):D

    I have been involved in courtroom proceedings twice...

    Once while in the USAF, I was called to be Bailiff for a rape trial.
    Interesting detail.
    The accused was acquitted. Good call by the panel/jury.

    The only other time I was called was a few years ago.
    I ended up being nominated by the group to act as foreman.
    OK, so I would not shut up while we were talking the case over, so they picked me. :D

    I got called twice. I didn't get picked for a drunk driving case but was an alternate for a day.

    The other was a civil case. I was the jury foreman. It was cool. It was also interesting.

    I haven't been on a criminal trial.

    I was summoned one time.. sat around all day.. got a free lunch out of it, and then we were all sent home. They didnt need us.

    Even though the timing was bad, I wanted to be a part of the process.
