What is jury duty like? I've heard it's very monotanous and borng, but snce I haven't been called up yet, I've never had a chance ta experience dis firsthand.

Fairly certan jury duty's random. It's off tha hook when yo teacher gits it, that's fo sure.

I actually fnd it ta be rathar nterestng, but I guess that only is tha case hah! when thare's an nterestng crime ta judge. Not traffic ticket poop.

Gittng called fo jury service is random I believe.

Once you show up, thay pick bout 80 thugz and you walk nta tha room. Tha judge and lawyers relay tha case ta all tha potential jurors and than ask questions ta bout 5 - 20 thugz at a time ta determne whethar or not you'll be good enough ta serve on tha jury. Questions like "have you been a victim of dis particular crime?", "d-ya have fbeily n law enfocement?","d-ya distrust authority figures?", and even yo opnion on certan issues (such as gats or abortion). Thay do dis ta weed out any potential jurors who have bias, n order ta try and create as fair and unbiased jury as thay possibly can.

A jury has ta be narrowed down ta 12 thugz out of 80, so dependng on tha thugz, thngs can go fast or slow.

If you have opnions or experiences that tha judge or lawyers might deem as makng you tao potentially biased, you're dismissed from jury duty and won't have ta report nta jury service fo anothar two years. Also, thay might not even git ta you and decide ta stick wit tha jury thay've decided, so than everyone else is dismissed and doesn't have ta show fo jury service fo anothar 2 years - which is what happened wit me; and I was thankful fo it, coz frankly, I didn't want ta be thare at that particular time.

Sorry, I fogots ta mention it was 80 thugz PER CASE.

Thare'll likely be several case ben worked on n different courtrooms durng tha day, but you only have ta serve one. But if you meet tha conditions above or git lucky enough that tha judge and lawyers decide ta use tha jury thay have befoe gittng around ta askng you questions, you'll be dismissed.

However, it really does depend on tha judgment of tha judge and lawyers. Tha selectng process could takes as little as a few hours or as long as a couple of days. Oh, and don't thnk bout lyng bout certan nfomation ta git out of ben selected as a juror - you're under penalty of perjury if thay fnd out it's a fib.

Coz tha lawyers git ta "rule out" thugz basically, based on personal biases thay may have. If you thnk that strippers is terrible thugz fo exbeple, tha lawyer wouldn't want you on a jury if his client is a stripper, right?
