    Yeah, one notice I got said I could be selected for jury or grand jury duty. If selected for grand jury duty it would last for a month where jury duty was one day unless selected for a trial.

    Luckily grand juries don't meet every day, I was told one could be convened at any time but they tried to keep it to once a week.

    Do you get to go home every day if your on it? I'm just wondering how a person would manage to look after their animals (and children of course) otherwise.

    Be like any other job and in this case it's an 8 hour day, only working over time if it's required in special circumstances.

    If I ever get selected for a trial, it had better be the trial of the century. I would totally be ok if I was on the jury for some big time mafia trial or something along those lines. Anything less would annoy me.

    I hear ya, although I wouldn't want the stress of all that mess on my hands lol and a trial like that would be a loooong one. I'm on the jury and it's just a misdemeanor. The judge said all day Monday and possibly through Tuesday as well.
