Dear Readers,

I am currently serving jury duty.  Today I was at the courthouse from 8:30AM until 5:20PM and it sounds as though I will be there for about a week.  Adam's Ale may be on a slight hiatus or tat least spotty during this time as any free time I have will be used trying to catch up on things I can't do during the day. 

Thanks and please come back after my jury time is up.

God bless,

Fr. V

Father, are you able to wear clerical clothing while serving on a jury?

Make that Eleven Angry Men and one Good Father.

I gather from the fact that you are still on jury duty that you got put on a trial. We miss you!

Greetings and thanks!

Yes, I was on a civil case and yes I did wear my clerics. Everybody wore what they normally wore and so I saw no reason to put on special clothing.

12 Angry Men! One of the classics! I always wanted to direct that show.

So, did art imitate life?

Fr. V said...

Not in the least.

Court is MUCH more interesting on T.V. save for a few minutes here and there. Every once in a while I would think, "Now that's what Law and Order is like."

I think they should serve popcorn. It would be much more bareable.

I was just chosen to be on a jury last month. The worst part is the jury selection and the sitting around for hours upon hours. The best part was when the nurse expert witness was on the stand. The case was settled after 2 days. I am looking forward to the next jury duty summons.
