They're blunt over there

Here's a rather direct pitch to be excused from jury duty, as filed in Belgrade, Montana.

Here's hoping the presiding judge has a sense of humor and invites the fella AND HIS DOG to sit in the jury room for an afternoon.

I cringed when I read it, and while a lawyer surely can't address the court like that, the more I think about it as a plain old citizen everything he said is protected by the 1st Amendment.

So, was he excused from jury duty?

I note it did not state whether he had been excused or not.

What he said is protected by the 1st, but failure to appear for jury duty is not. My guess is that his approach will get him hauled before the judge.

There was a case a couple of weeks ago in MC about a guy who got bored with jury duty and left. The judge issued an arrest warrant and hauled his butt back to the courthouse.

I don't care who you are, that was a riot !!

Git R Done !!

Do ya think the Sheriff's deputies were fighting to see who gets to haul that yokel into court.

Sounds better than "I don't think I can be fair."

If you don't want to be on a jury, just say, "I can tell whether a person is guilty or not just by looking at him."
