Reported for jury duty yesterday and very fortunately did not get picked. There were 90 jurors and I was randomly assigned 83. They only got to number 66 before they had enough people for a jury so I'm off the hook.
Darned good thing too because the trial started today and was scheduled to run for two weeks. Sounded interesting
I've been through the local court process several times, including sitting on two juries, once as an alternate and once all the way to deliberation and verdict, but this was my first time seeing the federal process. It's different. I'll just leave it at that.
I may have to go back in August, but there are no trials planned at this point for August, so with a little luck I'm done for at least two years.
