case closed

My jury service ended this afternoon. The case was an inquest [metrokc], not a trial; so the deliberations weren't particularly controversial. After being relieved of our jury badges, I looked up the case on Nexis and found an article about it in the local news [seattletimes].

Although I'd felt cheated by my years of not being called to jury duty, I was sort of glad that the actual decision-making was non-dramatic by design. The case was long and intense enough as it was.
