As I write this, I am waiting in the Milwaukee County Courthouse as a potential juror. To the best of my knowledge, I am the first Sound Machine member to post while on jury duty.

Wish I had remembered to bring a book! :-)

Congratulations! That's great. Unfortunately, serving on a jury is something I will never be able to do................Bill

I had jury duty in May. My number had even been called in the first 12, so I was set to get in the box right off the bat! But in the 5 minutes between that happening and them sending the bailiff down to get us a plea agreement was reached and I was allowed to go home. I didn't have the foresight to post to SM in the process, so you are indeed the first by my recollection! :king:

Still waiting to be called. I guess this proves the old adage, "They also serve who stand and wait."

Kind of an interesting deal they have here with the Milwaukee Blood Center. The Blood Center makes it possible to give blood WHILE waiting for the call for jury duty. It's a good idea when you think of it. After all, we're a captive audience here. So,I donated a pint earlier today.

Hmmm...lightheaded jurors after donating blood...might explain some of the trial outcomes I read about...

It was pure theater...for that I would give it a high ranking. But as someone who often wears leather motocross gloves, I can tell you that after they have dried out from non-use, I look just like OJ trying to get them on...except I really do try to put them on my hands.

Sorry, but I have to ask, are you defending the verdict, or the system, or OJ, or what (who)?

:lol: I wholeheartedly agree:) It reminded me of the musical Chicago. "Give 'em the ol' razzle dazzle..."

I served as a juror about 19 years ago for a rape case. Young girl having sex with her boyfriend got scared and thought she might be pregnant said the mail man raped her. We found that she was lying and the poor mail man was innocent.
Then I got called again about 13 years ago, but I was pregnant and due anytime so they let me go home.

Just last week, I got a letter stating I may be selected for jury duty in January 2010 and the case could last until December 2011! :shock: I hope I do not get selected, I have a business to run. I know they let you off if you work for the government or you are in the military but I'm not sure if they will let me off being a sole proprietor. Anyone here know?

I do know here in VA you cannot bring in any kind of electronics including a cell phone into the building. So it is interesting that Jim was able to post.
