The Watercooler : I have jury duty this week, my first time not turning it down.

I have jury duty this week, my first time not turning it down.

I'm excited. I have a small purse that fits my laptop, and they have a vending machine.

Yes! I get to take the bus for free. I'll get $15 and if a few days more $30, since I'm not a paid worker.

I've gone for jury duty a few times but have never been chosen.

Let us know! This will be interesting. But of course you can't post about the trial. They tell you not to talk about it.

Okay. That's a little odd they don't let you talk about the trial, sounds dishonest.

Re: I have jury duty this week, my first time not turning it down.

No, it's to protect the defendant. They don't want people outside of the jury who haven't heard the evidence to influence the jurors. That's only fair.

Re: I have jury duty this week, my first time not turning it down.

It's the opposite of dishonest, Christina. It's to maintain impartiality and to ensure the case is tried on the merits of the evidence alone.

If you discuss it, the uninformed person you talk to may influence your thinking based on their preconceptions of the case. Or they may spread information about it, unduly influencing the press, and the public at large, in turn, further influencing you and your fellow jurors.

Plus, you might think the defendant is guilty. The other 11 jurors may not, and aquit. You may have then damaged this innocent person's reputation as the aforementioned rumor mill gets to work. If you thought they were innocent, but the rest of the jury decided they were guilty, the "rumor" you will have started would reputationally damage the judicial system.

Good. You shouldn't be allowed on a jury. Because you're a fucking retard.

Re: I have jury duty this week, my first time not turning it down.

I mean no offence but I hope you don't get chosen.
Judy Duty isn't as exciting as you might think, you spend a lot of time being ushered in and out of a courtroom whilst legal arguments are made away from the jury. Sometimes you can be there for days but sometimes it's many weeks.
At best it will be boring and at worse it could be traumatic for you, depending on what kind of case you get.

Good luck.

Re: I have jury duty this week, my first time not turning it down.

Well, I'm moving the beginning of May, so I can't stay that long. I was under the impression it'd be 1 day, probably. Well, at least there's a snack and soda machine. I wish/hope they had a cafe. I hope I don't have to sit there long. Also, I just shaved my head and am wearing a nice new hat I got.
