I learned two strategies for handling jury duty:
- Be among the last into a courtroom. If they run out of seats, you get dismissed and sent back to the larger pool.
- If when they call your name in the larger pool, if you are not present (perhaps in the restroom), they send somebody else and you remain in the pool.
Whatever the case, those of us still in this room were just dismissed for lunch.
BTW, I am making even more entries in this liveblogging experience with Twitter, where I can be found at
