Even though I’m all for fulfilling civic duties, after this week, I never want to be on a jury again. I can’t imagine the toll it takes on those in the legal profession who are exposed to these matters all the time.
That’s my service over with, although I think I’m going to need to take a few days to clear my head.
A couple of months ago I received a jury citation, and today I was selected from a pool of sixty or so to be part of a jury with fourteen of my peers. It’s both daunting and inspiring to see the wheels of justice working up close.
Obviously I can’t talk about the trial, but safe to say things might be quieter from me for the next while.
