Cattle Call

By Internet Lawyer

They have finished excluding prospective jurors with valid exemptions. Being an Internet lawyer does not qualify as an exemption.

Under Texas law, I could have claimed an exemption for taking care of my kid. However, he will make it to football practice without me holding his hand.

There is always a shortage of jurors. Although it is far more profitable to bill my time this morning as an Internet lawyer than the 6 bucks I will get as a juror, there is a civic duty in addition to be an officer of the court.

So I have been sworn as a prospective juror and sit here with my fellow citizens waiting to be called to a courtroom for questioning (voir dire).

To your online success!

Jury Duty

By Internet Lawyer

Even an Internet attorney can get summoned for jury duty. This morning should be fun because I will get questioned like any other potential juror.

However, it is unlikely I will get picked (never have). They tend to not want an Internet attorney, or any other lawyer for that matter, on a jury because of the ability to sway the jury to a particular decision. The joys of the justice system.

To your online success!
