I may have to go to Jury Duty next Friday. I got my paperwork in the mail today. It says to dress respectfully.

I guess that means I can't show up in jeans, my shirt unbuttoned, and a sideways Giants hat while smoking a blunt. :-p

People here in Pittsburgh are actually terrified of getting a jury summons these days.

The reason is that the Bill Cosby drug-rape trial is about to get underway in Philadelphia.
His lawyers argued for a change of venire, due to the fact that the case has been so widely
publicized in the Philadelphia area.  The judge agreed and ordered that a jury be brought
in from Allegheny County (which is Pittsburgh).

Absolutely NO ONE around here wants to go to Philadelphia and be sequestered
on a high-profile celebrity trial that could drag on for months, and where once it
concludes TMZ and Entertainment Tonight are never going to stop hounding you
for interviews.

Everyone I know is trying to get out of jury duty until this case actually
gets underway.

I don't blame them. Plus it has to be tough to send a disabled elderly man to jail. And it has to be tough to send Dr. Huxtable to jail.

The Cosby jury has been picked.  Everyone in Pittsburgh can now
breathe a sigh of relief.

A few weeks ago I got another summons for Jury Duty. This time in November. See in Connecticut the court year runs something like August 1st-July 31st, so that's how I got nailed again. November is in the new "Court Year". I sent in a request to delay it til May.

I never got a juror summons in CT,  but in the 10 years I've been in Florida, I had 6. Yet to be picked, but I tell people that I don't like criminals.
