Case Dismissed

You don’t have to be an Internet attorney to be ticked off by the results of today’s jury duty. All five cases scheduled for trial today apparently settled.
While settlement is a good thing, doing it on the day of trial meant that lawyers for both sides of each case wasted an irreplaceable day of productivity for the hundreds of prospective jurors who showed up per court summons.
Every one of these cases could have settled prior to the day of trial. The ejuror website would have notified those summoned that they didn’t need to show up. Instead, the lawyers wasted everyone’s time.
If cases settle on the day of trial, attorneys for both sides should be sanctioned an amount to pay each prospective juror based upon the daily average per capita income in the jurisdiction.
Jurors would be more likely to serve if lawyers respected their time. This is just one of many reasons why I prefer being an Internet attorney instead of a trial lawyer.
To your online success!
