The Act of Serving

Wednesday, July 14, 2010
Astute readers will recall that I was summoned to serve jury duty a little while ago. Well, this past Monday, I made my way to the Multnomah County Courthouse, leaving home at the ungodly hour of 6:45 AM so that I could take the bus downtown.

So here are a few hints for serving jury duty:
1) The Jury Duty waiting room has WiFi. Bring a laptop!
2) Definitely plan on taking the bus or MAX to the courthouse. It's just off the bus mall.
3) Bring coffee and/or snacks of your own. They have a snack bar, but it's expensive and they have limited options. Bring your own.
4) They pick for Grand Jury on Mondays. From our pool of probably 120 or so jurors, they pulled 45 upstairs to ask us. Fortunately, "not getting paid" counts as a hardship, and I wasn't able to serve (though I wish I could have!)
5) Quit smoking. Breaks are limited.
