Jury Duty, part 2

Interestingly enough, the NY Times did a story today about the recession's impact on Jury Duty. It even mentions Orlando, Florida.

My grumbling was directed at those folks who could rearrange their schedules if needed, but choose to claim hardship instead. In reading the comments on the NY Times article, the idea of allowing people to volunteer and/or schedule themselves for a particular week, while presenting logistical issues for the Court, would undoubtedly improve the selection pool.

  1. I would not trust a juror who volunteered to be there. Such a person likely has an agenda that would bias his/her ability to make an impartial decision.
