Jury Duty

So, I've been summoned as Juror 153 tomorrow. Never been on Jury duty before. Should be interesting, I suppose. I hope it's not longer than one or two days. I've got Easter Vigil rehearsal on Friday down at St. Andrew's.

Wow, you have all the fun! I've only ever been called as a juror (twice), immediately after moving away from a place....

Did you want readers at the rehearsal?

I served on a jury once. It was a multi-million dollar lawsuit. A teenage girl decided to suddently do a u-turn on the Interstate and got clipped by a tractor trailer. She died, so her parents sued the trucking company.

I found myself as the only holdout against finding of the plaintiff. What was surprising was how easily jurors were swayed by emotional arguments along the lines of "She was such a beautiful girl -- let's give her some money!"
