Got called from jury waiting room to a court room, was told trial could last 5 weeks. Judge asked if anybody had reasons they couldn't take 5 weeks off work/life to do the trial. 2/3rds of the people left. I had no good excuse, though in retrospect I have a number which were better than the ones I heard. (many were damn pathetic)
So of the ~1/3rd that stayed, we did a (paper) survey, dropped it off, and left. We have to show up Thursday at 9:30 am for round 2, at which time they'll boot me and/or ask me questions. I answered the survey honestly. It'll be interesting what they ask me next.
I'm not much interested in a 5 week trial.
