It got me out of the final 25 once, and coworkers seem to never get picked either.
Haha. What about a cloud network security engineer that works with law enforcement from time to time to catch people who steal movies? I hear that lawyers like people who they can Obi-Wan.
This was for a criminal case, but it was obvious that if you had a bias for/against law enforcement, you were out. Two people that got selected were a commercial airline pilot and a drywall hanger.
@crazychile surprised they chose a guy who was openly for hanging. :P
Or, just tell them you're 2000% more biased than anyone else being selected for jury duty.
Seriously the magic phrase seems to be "I don't feel I'll be able to be impartial in this case". If you can come up with a plausible reason, you should be home free (unless the judge smells bullshit).
Just read a synopsis or two in Wikipedia for a couple of serial killer documentaries and try to talk about those until they excuse you.
"Too analytical" = "will see through lawyer's bs and red herrings" or is it more "will ask 1000 irrelevant questions just b/c"
My latest jury duty case was a Mexican charged with first degree murder of two people. I got out by telling them that Trump was the bestest prez evar and the wall should be put up yesterday.
Just do your fucking jury duty. Unless it's too damned inconvenient from your location. Otherwise, just do the motherfucker.
Not doing a ten day trial. Will let the retired teachers and government employees do that. They get comped. Don't even have enough vacation time.
I suppose that leaves one something to look forward to in one's declining years.
I don't have a problem with doing jury duty. My employer fully compensates for it, plus I get to keep the pittance that the city pays jurors. I just made the comment that locally they don't seem to pick engineers very often. If I was a defendant I'd want thinking jurors instead of a bunch of people who don't care.
Separate names with a comma.
