I got the be a juror for exactly no time at all! My duty as a citizen is fulfilled!
I got up really early to head to the courthouse. My very gracious roommate let me borrow his car, and I ambled up to the courthouse. Everyone was really nice who worked there.
A judge led the opening announcement and has some interesting facts:
- There are more people living in Orange County than there were in the 13 original colonies. This makes jury service a bit different from how it was originally conceived.
- The courts count on you to get it right!
- About 6-8 people per year get married after meeting on jury duty. So, keep your eyes peeled!
