I was summoned for federal court jury duty, a first time for me.  The summons came on the heels of a similar letter from the local District Court. For a while it looked I would become a semi- professional juror. As it turned out the Missoula District Court case was settled before it went to trial. The Federal case wasn’t, so it was off to the courthouse Monday morning.

If you’re ever summoned I urge you to show up. First off you can get in lots of trouble if you don’t.  But most importantly it’s a real learning experience, something you won’t regret.
