Today I have to call and find out if I have jury duty. This is the first time that I am able to go if I am actually called. I take the responsibility seriously and I wish that I would be called for a case that has some import, a criminal case, any type of case, really, but something that requires me to come to some kind of decision about the participants moral character. I feel that I can be impartial, and that I would be valuable to the system. I am intelligent, well-read and fair. At least that is what I have always claimed to be, and having the opportunity to use those resources would be cool. I would like to see the process also. I have known only one person who attended a case that seemed somewhat interesting, but she was protective of the information, which was admirable I guess. After all, jurors are not supposed to discuss the cases they are on, and she didn't, not until after the fact and then she was very vague about details. So, in about two minutes I contact them to find out if I go today. I will have to scramble to be ready. Does anybody have any jury duty stories?
