Sorry, I forgot to mention it was 80 people PER CASE.

There'll likely be several case being worked on in different courtrooms during the day, but you only have to serve one. But if you meet the conditions above or get lucky enough that the judge and lawyers decide to use the jury they have before getting around to asking you questions, you'll be dismissed.

However, it really does depend on the judgment of the judge and lawyers. The selecting process could take as little as a few hours or as long as a couple of days. Oh, and don't think about lying about certain information to get out of being selected as a juror - you're under penalty of perjury if they find out it's a fib.
