    Big LOL. My last stint in jury duty I tried to avoid it by admitting to having been charged in the past for some of the same as the defendant.

    Both sides wanted my ass on the jury.

    Let me qualify that. I was absolutely a subject matter expert on the stuff I was asked to testify about, as I had pioneered some of the stuff I was being asked to testify about. I was just astounded that it was as simple as having a lawyer draw up a CV-lite that says "You're an expert." I'm sure it gets abused frequently.
    Gorka wouldn't stand a chance as an "expert witness". Don't make me laugh. Expert at what, crying on FOX?

    Don't bring yourself down to his level.

    I'm way smarter than you.

    The judge wouldn't let me out of grand jury service, specifically because I'm smarter than you. He was smarter than me.

    Have you ever even served the people, bro?

    I want your ass on a jury.

    Stalking, was it? Something some Bullshidoka claimed about you, right? I've been gone a while.

    I tried everything I could do to get on a jury just to get out of work for a while. Nope, got booted off almost every time. The one time I got on one was for an armed robbery and the asshole plead out before the trial started and I had to go home. Bummer.

    I've seen multiple hearings contesting expert-witness claims by counsel. Most state rules of court procedure have rules regarding what is allowed or not.

    The jury has to sort out the evidence, regardless.

    When I was younger I really wanted to be on one for the experience and because I consider it our civic duty and an important part of our nation's laws.

    I got called once in my early 20s, and went in only to be released right off the bat.

    I was recently called again, but was cut in the 1st cut again.

    I had an old boss who'd served on like 3 of them.
    A succubus is a Lilin-demon in female form, or supernatural entity in folklore that appears in dreams and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. Religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or mental state, or even in death.

    Cops, lawyers, and judges often express the desire to be on a jury IME.

    Depending on the type of trial, they can be very interesting, or incredibly boring.
