Grrrr jury duty


Recommended Posts

Wouldn't that kinda ruin the entire point of being judged by ones peers?

 

In this world of Myspace and Facebook, we are all each other's peer. Almost one, like John Lennon prophecised.

I've always just pushed my date back whenever I get a summons. I'll go next time I get one though. Have to experience it appreciate how much it sucks. Plus, maybe I'll some time to play on my DS.

 

Isn't communication with the outside world prohibited? Wouldn't the DS's WiFi tip them off?

 

You can always get a book, though...

AFAIK communication with the outside world is only prohibited *if* the individual is seated on a jury and *if* the jury is sequestered.

 

Obviously you can't be playing a DS game if you're in a jury listening to evidence, but I'd imagine when you're in the waiting area waiting to see if you're called for a jury interview you'd be able to play. Last time I was waiting for jury duty though I don't think the DS existed... :)

I would love jury duty. It would be nice to be on the other end of the court room. Each time I was to go to court I was a damn witness.

 

You mean accused. :)

I always thought I would, too. Friends who've done it say it's incredibly tedious, but I always thought I'd be moved by the sense of the history and heritage and the trappings of the judicial system, rights that were fought for over the centuries and all that - rather like walking into the entrance of one of the great museums. I also get quite emotional when voting. :x

:lol:

Personally I just get extremely nervous and keep doublechecking that I did it right.

 

Good man! o:)
