Today I was paid roughly $60 for four hours of my time. If I had the choice I would have forfeited that money in return for being seated. Silly prosecutors. This is the second time I've been challenged, presumably because I'm too young. :(
What is a fugitive doing in Jury Duty?
I know about the giant donut that you stole! :eek:
Obankobi;5606466"challeged"? What is that? I have to go in March. :(
Provided his judicial system is to different then ours, I believe it's when one of the over paid lawyers thinks one of the jurors won't see the case his way and wants to have him released
...for instance, a trial of a neo-nazi is going on and one of the jurors is a skinhead...it would stand to reason that the defense lawyer would want to keep him, but the prosecutor may want to challenge him to get him off the jury pool...
Or...it could be that Riles smells bad =p
But I had my first bathing this year just so I'd leave a good impression!
Maybe it's the wig.

Maybe you looked too intelligent. You have to remember that lawyers don't want a juror who will go with the truth, they want a juror who will go with the right answer. =p
Last time I got called to appear, we didn't even get to questioning. The lawyer apparently ended up in the hospital. So I didn't even get the chump change.
Was that federal or state jury duty?
Ha Ha! I've never been called for jury duty!
