i got jury duty a few weeks ago. it got me out of 2 days work, so i guess it was ok.
the case was actually dismissed or rescheduled or something because they couldn't select enough jurors. this guy had the idea that since his car had been crashed, he not only wanted the repairs done, but some extra money to cover his losses due to depreciation because of the crash.
when asked, almost every jury candidate said the car was worth less because of the crash, so the defense eliminated pretty much everyone.
i thought this was pretty sharp... based on that set of jurors, that guy certainly got some kind of settlement from the insurance company to cover the amount of money lost because people think previously crashed used cars are worth less than never crashed used cars. i kinda wish it had gone to trial so i could have seen the outcome.
