      Mine was a drunk driving case. My past experience with alcohol got me axed.,

        Interesting ... and unusual. Defendants rarely dignify a chiropractor treating a plaintiff with an opposing chiropractic expert, since there are indeed loads of folks out there who have had bad past experiences with chiropractors. Most defendants will simply rely on cross-examinations that focus on the limitations of the practice, as opposed to "traditional" medical practice.

            • On the subject of juries, I’ve been called in twice. Once I was shortlisted but not put on the jury. I was 20yo at the time. And then when I was 28. I never made into the courtroom that time.

                What do you mean "shortlisted?" In the courtroom but not to the box for voir dire?

                • Better than my only jury duty, they chose 14 who had to sit and listen to the case, and then picked the 12 at the end to deliberate. I assume in case people got sick or otherwise would not be there.

                  I was one of the two let go. After spending like two days hearing the case.

                  • My only jury duty was during my birthday month. Trial was for a guy accused of second-degree murder and some drug charges stemming from a drug deal gone wrong, or something along those lines. I was among the final 32 selected from an initial pool of 100, but not the final 14. I think the guy ended up getting somewhere around 7-10 years. Never had to serve a day.

                      I always feel bad for the alternates, but at least you only had to sit through two days. Last Spring we had a 3-week civil trial (construction defect case), selecting 10 with 2 alternates (12 total). When the judge dismissed the 2 alternates, they had a look of ***.

                        Yes, I was in the courtroom and the attorneys were asking questions of prospective jurors. The 12 jurors were chosen before the attorneys got around to me. It was a meth cooking case in Rosemount, MN. The defendant looked the part from Hollywood’s central casting.

                        • It's been like a full week since a cop murdered an unarmed black person. Have they all been at church rattling their tasers and rosary beads praying for Emperor Unpalatable to recover?
