  2. At least a two week sentence - are you hoping you don't get called for any cases?
    Here Jury Duty is for 3 months!

  4. I wish someone would call me for jury duty. Never been and would rather go there than work any day. Good luck!

  5. Been there two times. Once I was picked and the case was dismissed. Second time I had a vacation planned with unrefundable tickets. Got out of that one too. And I'm glad I did. It was the Waterbury, CT mayor, Philip Giordano's trial. You know, he was the one who was raping little girls. And he was guilty as hell. Don't think I would have been chosen anyway.

  6. I used to think it would be interesting to participate in the process of justice by one's peers and all that. I was much younger then.

  11. I'm on the permanent "never call" list -- one of the benefits of the self-employed. But I think it could be interesting . . . at least in my small town.

  12. Ugh ... I was called this month and had to ask for another date since we were out of town.

  13. I think you know my jury duty story. Ugh. I have done my duty, and I will do anything short of murdering somebody to get out of it should I be called again.
