I'm on jury duty. I had to go to the court last Friday. They explained the case to us and dismissed us at 1:00 p.m. They told us to come back on Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. I went on Tuesday and the case began and lasted until 3:00 p.m. We were told to come back Thursday at 10:00 a.m. So I went today at 10:00 a.m. we listened to some additional testimony, then we were dismissed at 11:00 a.m. and told to return again on Monday at 10:00 a.m. People I have discussed this with are surprised with at one- day-on, one-day-off. They have never heard of this. It's a civil case, so maybe that has something to do with it? Anyone else ever go on jury duty and have a similar experience? Not that I'm complaining since we get $40/day for jury duty in Queens County. Also, the court is a 10 minute bus ride from my house, and all the other jurors are very nice. The judge is nice and so are the lawyers.
