1) I can see why it takes 3 years to get a case through the system – it’s insanely inefficient. At least from the perspective of the person called for jury duty. I’m certain that the attorneys who apparently knew they didn’t need to get there at 9:00am as we were instructed to do had a fine morning. However, it would have been nice if they had told me I didn’t really have to get there until 9:30 at the earliest because they were going to wait for all the late people anyway. Second, it would be ideal if instead of having each of us stand and say our name, our age, our occupation and our spouses occupation they would have just read all that information and more on the 9 page form I had to fill out and send back. But then why would we bother them with such silly things as actually using the information that I was requested to provide? After an entire day of people being asked questions (which by the way had they asked each person those questions personally rather than in a group of 150 people I could have been done in 10 minutes because I didnt have the need to explain how I was really busy, or that my husbands business does such and such, or that for this reason on that I should be excused) I was set free at 2:30. Not sure what was accomplished by my sitting there, but such is life.
