Jury Duty

I have been summoned for jury duty tomorrow in the State Court of Fulton County. This is the third time for me, but I have never been actually chosen to hear a case. I find it fascinating to observe the process from the other side of the bench, however.

While I was tempted to try to get out of jury duty, at the end of the day I knew it was the right thing to do. Our system cannot work with citizens being willing to serve. Hopefully, by tomorrow, the lawyers will have mediated their case, and I won’t be needed.

Have you ever served on a jury? What was it like?

    I served for the first time this year in a civil lemon law case. I was torn because I was sympathetic with the plaintiff, but the law did not give us much latitude. Mercedes Benz should have done the right thing and given her a settlement.
