They haven't called me back since -

LMAO!! Jury selection in the UK is a random process. I was called, however, got out of it as I was at University and couldn't take time away from my studies (excuse supported by my lecturer).. never had a calling since.. will keep in mind your strategy, bully my way to the top.

In the US getting called to the Jury pool is random selection, but not actually being on the jury. The lawyers on both sides have an opportunity to interview jurors and have a certain number of "dismissals" they can do from the interviewees. The exact process varies between jurisdictions.

The one time I've gotten called, I sat in the jury pool all week and every case settled before going to trial so no one was ever called to interview. I listened to audiobooks, surfed the web and played games on my tablet. We were also given 90 minutes for lunch each day, and we were released just about every day by early afternoon. Since my company pays you while on jury duty (for up to 6 months I think) it was sort of like being on vacation.


Now, MomHawk has been called 4 times and each time ended up on a jury where the case lasted several days, so obviously YMMV.

Random Someone Needs to Buy This Unicorn of the Day

2011 Cadillac CTS-V Wagon, 6 Speed MT, No sunroof and NOT black.

A little high on the mileage, but that's just a number with these engines. Be still my heart!

So what you saying is, that including Humfrz's bulling tactics, bad/good interview technique is required just to get to the prize of sitting on a hearing...

Would cost me about $5K to get it here, certified for Canada and on the road but at the current price still worth it. I will be seriously watching for the next 3 days.

I know you aren't joking, that's what makes it even more hilarious.


If I ever need a tractor, I will get a Deere or something, but I don't see it. Could you imagine trying to get parts?
