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.

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

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.
