No trials started today so no juries were selected. It's all done. My week is over.
It's definitely not something I'd want to do as a full time job, this waiting around business, but for the week, well, it was something different. It definitely gives insight as to why our justice system is so backlogged and why cases so often get thrown out of court due to institutional delays (thanks for the correction borderjack). If the rest of the systems runs as inefficiently as jury selection, it's amazing they get anything substantial done. The most surprising thing is that no one seems interested in fixing it. Oh well, that's a topic for someone else's blog.
