"Jury service is one of the most important aspects of our legal system," said Presiding Judge Amy McCullough. "It is safe for us to resume jury trials and we look forward to seeing you at the Rose Garden."
I have never actually participated in jury duty. Each time my name came up, something was going on in my life that prevented me from participating. Like one year, I was pregnant and on bed rest. The next time I was recovering from my double mastectomy. Maybe it is just not in the cards for me to sit a jury, but I would absolutely love to.
