Jury Duty at Jack Bogs Blog

By

Jack Bogdanski has been blogging about his jury duty at the Multnomah County Courthouse. It’s interesting to read and hear what people think of jury duty. I was first called to serve (sounds good doesn’t it) donkey’s years ago in Philadelphia, one of the first cities to use the One Day One Trial system. I loved it. When else can you get a day off from work, the freedom to read newspapers and magazines with few disturbances, and to be entertained (the jury foreman practically did his part as if it was a comedy standup routine – very effective). This was way back before the days of computers and cell phones (cripes, the typewriters were made out of wood back then!) – it was all very peaceful in that room, hushed even. For a future librarian this was bliss. I wasn’t selected that first time, but was many jury-calls later when I lived in New Haven. I still loved it (it was a personal injury case). I would be first in line if anyone wanted to turn it into a real job. Sure it’s tough, but someone’s got to do it.
