I did not get selected for a jury today. I was the subject of the 4th preemptory challenge by the prosecutor in an assault case. This was around 3 p.m. so I got to go home. Tomorrow I go back in the pool to see if I get picked for a different trial.
On the other hand, when I mentioned to the clerk at Elliott Bay Books that I was serving on jury duty, I found out I get a 20% discount by showing my juror badge. Yes, I bought more books.
