Our jury system depends on people serving and it‘s not fair to them to lose their livelihoods in order to do their civic duty. I was recently involved in a jury selection for a case that was expected to take more than 2 months. So many people were unable to afford the time off because they wouldn‘t be paid. And that affects the representativeness of the jury as well. I remember one long case where a juror almost lost his house. We need to do something about this. Thanks for writing about this important subject Roy. Comments are not moderated. To report offensive comments, click here. Preparing comment abuse report for Article #1202783695615 Send Thank you!
