    I don't think it's anything to do with them being unorganised. Criminal cases can be complex.

    Remember to tell us what happens, and also remember, if he LOOKS guilty, he probably is.

    They are pretty organised - if you figure some cases will finish and others begin, they have to have an overlap of potential jurors and also jurors can be objected to etc etc.

    I did Jury Service last Christmas - was able to catch up on loads of work in a quiet corner and they even had a pool table and a plasma screen.

    it seems such a waste of money to have 50 people sitting there all day for nothing you must have been in an upmarket court they dont even have a radio on in the one i was at

    Far cheaper than having 50 barristers, judges, police etc sitting doing nothing because there are not folks ready to form a Jury.
