They are the well-meaning amateurs of the legal business — the groundlings the lawyers play to, the children the judges send off to their rooms with a stern warning not to be naughty. They’re me, they’re you, they’re tried and true. Like nuns they always travel in groups. They are jurors, and they were all over our newspapers this week. They were being given a chance to step out from the chorus and take an occasional star turn in the courtrooms of the 3rd Circuit, where they will be allowed to ask questions of witnesses in criminal cases. They were being interviewed by private detectives in Florida, asked what did they think they were doing giving away $37 million verdicts. They were getting a new dress code in Georgia and having their own criminal pasts investigated in Florida. Love them, hate them, but know your juries.
