The room and chairs are still tiny, but there were 14 less of us since two juries of six, plus two alternates, were selected yesterday. I was surprised that the juries consist of only six people since I thought a standard jury was 12! The rest of us waited to see if we would be needed for trial today. Waiting, waiting, waiting. The majority of the people in the room with me were in their mid-forties or older. Actually, a lot of them were a lot older. There were way more retirees than any other demographic, at least in the group that I was called with. Did the younger people opt out because of career and family duties? I saw no one under 30. Is that because there are much fewer registered voters under the age of 30? It would be interesting to look at the statistics of who make up the majority of juries.
