Our jury selection process was kind of strange. It was over zoom. There was about 50 of us. Basically it came down to not having scheduling conflicts, and not having covid. I only raised my hand one time, when they asked if I had ever been a involved with a trust or receive an inheritance. They never asked me a direct question.How did it go @UNSTUCK ?
I've never made it into a jury but I get a kick out of the potential jurors during when they're answering the questions about themselves. I can only imagine the stories trial lawyers have.
Now you understand how I felt after 8 weeks......Day 4:
Longest week of my life.
similar to all of my interactions, but cheaper than some of mine. I was constantly making points and getting docs that they had and should have known about.Lawyers make their money based on time. The longer they can drag it out, the better. That is why our system is so screwed up.
It cost me $20,000 last time I got sued. That was just to have a lawyer dig through some papers, take some calls, and then submit the paper that WE found that he had missed. We were released from the suit, no court visit, no meeting the other attorneys, no anything. Just paper submissions. $20,000.
