A Good Jury Duty Experience (For a Change)

It seems one of America’s favorite pastimes is swapping stories and strategies about how to get out of jury duty. Before I knew any better, I was just as guilty of it as the next person. But if you really think about it, aside from voting, jury duty is one of the few times you are asked to get up from your couch and actually do something for your country. Jury duty is our justice system’s way of handing ordinary citizens the judge’s gavel and asking them to decide disputes that could dramatically change the lives of the litigants, for better or worse. Jury duty is one of the pillars of our justice system. It’s an awesome responsibility. . . and privilege.

That’s why, when I read this editorial, it brought a smile to face. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
