I, the Jury

Intro: I'm Matt Cohen, occasionally referred to in this space as "buddy Matt". Despite working professionally with the Internet since 1989, this is my first blog post.

Tomorrow morning (Tuesday, July 5th), I start a two month term on a Federal petit jury panel in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas. Since Federal jury service is much less common than state court service, I thought this might be an informative topic for my guest posts.

Over the coming week I plan to post some of my experiences and thoughts. I'll do my best to read the comments and answer any questions.

I was originally scheduled to serve in May and June, but had to reschedule because of a work conflict. I have a two-week business trip coming up, but hopefully I won't have to reschedule again and can start my service tomorrow.

The lawyers who frequent this blog would be very interested to hear anything you are allowed to talk about.

So long as they don't bill Kuffner their minimum time charge for reading it.
