I'm really excited that chickenmagazine from Magic Cookie has gotten selected for a jury. (And, presumably, will blog about her experience as soon as she's allowed to.)
I've never been on a jury - and I fear that I never will be, now that I'm a pretty opinionated lawyer and everything. So, I'd like to hear some inside scoop on what really goes on in a jury room.
And I know that a few people have blogged now about their jury duty experiences, so it made me wonder - Have any of my former jurors ever blogged about any of my cases? And how would I find out? I don't think it would help to search by defendant, as most bloggers probably wouldn't identify the case by name like that. And a "jury duty" "assault" search probably wouldn't be specific enough. I could add the city name, but there's still hundreds of cases every year, so it'd be hard to figure out which is mine, right?
You know I've at least got to try it.
(Oh, and in case you're wondering, I always imagine that my jurors are in there saying things like, "She seems like such a nice young lady, her client must be innocent." "Yes, and did you see her shoes? They were great." "Did you hear that argument she made? That was wonderful, just like her suits." "I liked her hair, it was much better than the DA's.")
