I've never had jury duty, of course, I have many years to still be chosen. I'm actually looking forward to jury duty one day..

The Trial Jury has the much harder job, imho, of deciding whether or not there is reasonable doubt and if they will convict the defendant.

Probable cause is much easier than reasonable doubt.
Good points, Lynn. It's all very interesting to me. I was fascinated with serving and really going through the process. Also both the lawyers and the judges can be real characters and make things a little more interesting. I was happy that I served (but just as happy when I wasn't picked the last go around. )

Sounds like something you would be good at Lynn, but then there isn't much you can't do!
I have never been called to jury duty---probably since I have lived abroad since 1974! I would be a good candidate since I know nothing about everything---makes me less biased I think.
