I am on a wait list to get called in for jury duty this afternoon, so working from home. I'm trying to get some writing done, and having a little bit of writer's block.
The jury duty was not as much of a surprise, except that it is almost exactly a year from the last time I was called. I am curious how Alameda country decides who gets put into the yearly rotation, and who never gets called. I haven't done a good job of keeping track of my calls to jury duty, but I think this is number eight.
Last year I sat through three days of jury selection for a civil case regarding asbestos, and then the case was settled out of court. Let's see if this year will be as exciting.
