Well, I served my jury duty today. I was juror number 128. I think it went as high as 160. I got there at about 7:45 AM (had to be there at 8:00 AM) and sat in the room there for about 6 and 1/2 hours. They called people up to 105, I think, but they always sent more than was needed, etc. so many of those people just came back in the room and then got sent out again. Lunch was 1-2 PM, but at 12:30, one of the officers came up and said that everyone numbered 122 and below could go home. 123 had to stay as there was a case after lunch. So, 123 and up were allowed 1 and 1/2 hours of lunch. I just stayed in the other room (everyone else left except for one other guy), since I had packed a lunch. So, everyone came back and then at about 2:20, the officer came up and announced that we were all set and could go home. I alternated between watching TV (nothing I really wanted to watch) and reading the state drivers manual, except for the 20 minute instructional video and about another 15 minutes or so of a superior court judge speaking about jury duty. So, that’s my experience as a juror. :)
