Jury Service # 2 – 2nd time

Got challenged!! By the defence. After a huge delay following the first ballot we were taken into the court room at about 11am. I think I was about the 4 juror called up but I’m not sure if it was my clothes (opted for jeans and jacket this time), expression (vicious face looking down the barrel at all three lawyers), the accounting book that someone may have spied me reading in the waiting area, whatever it says about me on the electoral roll that the lawyers all fossick through when you’re name is called or my refusal of the bible as a crucial item to support me in being fair and honest, that caused them to challenge me. May have been an interesting case too – 8 counts of using funds that were due to the IRD inappropriately.

So, that’s it. Wonder how long until I’m called next?
