i'd be happy to at least get paid that much!

here in dallas we get a whopping $6 a day
you'd think they could at least pay you for lunch and parking

last november i got chosen to be on the jury for a trial that was supposed to last for a whole month! (but only lasted about 2 weeks). luckily we had a nice judge who was going to give everyone money for parking each day cuz it was so unusually long. the city parking is something like $10 a day (i can't remember exactly but when you get your parking validated you end up paying about $8 instead of $10 ).

i think the prices they pay jurors must still be left over from the 1940's or something lol.

Well ok, I doubt the guy wil lbe readin it anyway!
Without going into too much detail, we took 45 mins to agree that this guy was Not Guilty of a serious sexual assualt.

It was a good experience for a few days def. I'd love to do it again 1 day. I can't be selected for another 2 years at least tho..

I'm sorry....

Like I say tho - Not Guilty was the verdict, so the evidence really wasn't top notch at ALL!

On the off chance that I'd be picked AND the case made it to trial, I would've been screwed. The lady said I'd be put back into the schedule this summer though.....

...They didn't forget. Got my new jury summons yesterday.

Oh, and it says we get reimbursed the $2 it costs to park at the courthouse. Whoopeee!
