Been here at the downtown L.A. Superior court house since 7:30 this morning. You only get 12 hours notice if you need to report or not here in L.A. I'mlucky that my job pays for this because there's a grip load of people here that don't have that privilege. State only pays you $15.00 a day for this
. However, I was smart and packed the laptop (with Verizon Broadband anywhere)and extra batteries since we're going to be sitting here until 5 P.M.

Anyone have any tips on how to NOT get put on a trial. I do not want to be coming down here everyday for a week.

there going to ask you questions. answer them w/ a bias towards one of the parties involved. that will ALWAYS get you kicked off since the lawyers have toagree on who the jury will be

To the dude with the ultrasound avy, is it real? (serious question- that's your kid?) If so, props. What was he/she doing? Looked like it jumped.


To OP-

keep a cigarette in your mouth while speaking and curse a lot.

for real though, if you really don't want to be selected, just mention that you are biased against whatever sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religionof one of the parties involved.

personally, i wouldn't mind performing jury duty -- i figure i owe it to my community to serve.

Say there has to be a reason the accused is there. If they were innocent, then they wouldn't be there in the first place.
When I had to go, this chick used that line and was automatically excused
