I have jury duty today in the Dade County Circuit Court, down on West Flagler.
I've been called once before, a couple of years ago (see Called for Jury Duty and Jury Duty), but that was for the criminal court. I was part of the venire for a truly horrible case of child molestation, and while prepared to do it, I was very relieved not to be chosen as it sounded as if the evidence would be very graphic and upsetting.
This time it is civil court. Again, though, we have a one-day one-trial system, so if I don't get picked for a case, that's it until next time.
You might think that a law professor has no chance to be on a jury, but in fact that's not the case. A few of my colleagues have sat in actual trials.
See you in court. Maybe.
