I have been summoned

Filed under: — Jaime @ 5:59 pm

You have been chosen to join the Justice Squadron, 8 a.m. Monday at the Municipal Fortress of Vengeance.

Hell yeah, baby. I got called to jury duty. I get to serve tomorrow. Despite having been a registered voter since 18 and working for lawfirms for the last 6 years, I have never been requested to serve my fellow citizens in such a fashion*.

So what to do you think it will be that will get me kicked? Being a paralegal? Owning AD? Asking the judge ‘what’s this jury nullification I hear so much about?’

I’m bringing a notebook and will report back to you beachcombers when I am done.

The suggestion box is open for ways to make tomorrow fun. }:)

    Mmm….I’m betting paralegal will get you kicked, but you have so many points against you. :P

    Be careful. Last time I went to jury duty, I accidently got married.

    The paralegal thing will probably do it.

    I got called for duty once — had to fill out a big questionaire and come back for a second screening — then the case got plea bargained.

    I was a little disappointed. I thought serving on a jury might be an interesting experience.
