I received my first-ever jury summons in the mail a couple of weeks ago and ended up spending the day at the LA Superior Courthouse yesterday. I am a potential juror in a 6 week long civil trial and I have to go to court next Wednesday to find out whether I'll be selected for the jury or not. I assume that the plaintiffs won't want me on the panel, but I guess you never know. If I have to serve, at least I'm sure I'll end up with some good blog fodder after the trial is over.
It is probably not a good sign regarding career satisfaction that the thought of 6 weeks sitting in court sounds like a nice break from the billable hour, huh? Of course, it would cause me to miss a couple of trips that I've been planning, so I sort of hope I'm not selected.
