Civic Duty

Tuesday, June 22, 2010
Well, it's happened again. For the third time in the last 8 years or so, I've been summoned for jury duty, this time by Multnomah County. The second time, my avid readers will remember, was in Marion County a couple years ago. My first experience with jury duty was in the early 2000s, pre-blog, where I was on a three-week trial where I learned that the seats in Clackamas County's jury seating area are painfully uncomfortable..

my summons

I shall go one again to be part of a jury of someone's peers. Perhaps. Perhaps I won't get selected, like I wasn't selected for Marion County.

Probably the worst thing about jury duty, besides having to miss work for a few days or more, is that I have to arrive downtown (where there's no parking) sometime between 7:30 and 8:00 AM. I'm not ashamed to say that I'm usually still in bed at 7:30, so this is going to be pretty rough. I'll probably have to get up by 6 to catch a bus before 7.

Anyway, I shall show up and do my part... and then hope that they rotate everyone else in Multnomah County into the pool.
