I would love to do that. I think it would be a really great and valuable experience. However, I think it would be a bad idea because I know I would be biased in favor of the person I felt I knew better and admired.
Oh yeah. I think it would be insanely fun to hear what's going on and get an inside view of a really interesting trial. I've actually been following the Johnny Depp versus Amber Heard trial quite closely because I find it fascinating.
I think it would be really interesting to have a say in something so important. However, I'd be afraid of a decision being rendered against my own feelings and having to live with that the rest of my life. So I guess the short answer is "no."
Yes. I think it would be fun to hear all of the interesting testimony and be part of the process of deliberating over all of the evidence and deciding who to believe.
Definitely yes. If I were to have to give up my normal salary to be on a case being paid the standard juror payment of $15 per day, I would want to be assigned to an interesting trial. I wouldn't want to be a juror on a garden-variety, run-of-the-mill case where, for example, someone slipped and fell and is suing the owner of the property.
