We all may dream of being called to jury duty on a notorious murder case, but in reality we are more likely to be asked to sit on a jury involving a motor vehicle accident claim. Many people don’t want to serve because of the time it takes away from work and other important personal activities. Our local Courts recognize the sacrifice of jury duty and do everything they can to have the cases move quickly through trial. Much in the process has been streamlined since the days when you would have to show up every day for a week or more just to see if you would be chosen for a jury. Now, all jury selections for the week are over by the end of Monday. Everyone not chosen gets to go home. Those who are called back to sit on a jury through trial may find an unexpected satisfaction in doing their civic duty, even in the most mundane cases.
