Civic Duties

Got a jury summons a few weeks ago. First time ever for that. Today, I'm at the Kane County Courthouse, waiting for the judge to call for the pool to select jurors for a trial. No idea what the case might be, or if I'll be chosen to actually sit as a juror or alternate (and I won't be able to talk about it before the trial's over, so this is likely the last you'll hear about it until then. So far, I've seen a video about the process, and now I'm in the jury lounge, keeping myself occupied until called. About the only really annoying thing about it is that the self-stick JUROR badge I have to wear doesn't want to stay stuck to my suit jacket. I'll likely be wearing a different outfit later, assuming I'm chosen to sit on the jury. Any other observations will probably have to wait.
