Lawyer or not if you sound half way intelligent you will never be picked to serve on a jury. They are looking for malleable minds. I have been on jury duty several times and I can almost always tell which jurors will be disqualified by lawyers.
Uh, you're not suggesting that you
don't sound half-way intelligent, are you au1929
? No doubt the lawyers who picked you for those juries mistakenly
thought you were one of those "malleable minds," right?
During voir dire
(questioning of the jurors) for a double-murder trial, I revealed that I was a Cubs fan. I think that may have convinced the prosecution to excuse me (Cubs fans probably have too much sympathy for underdogs and the downtrodden to be unbiased jurors).
