At the courthouse this morning 65 of us swore to answer truthfully to questions that would lead to decisions about who gets to serve for some three weeks on the case as jurors.

They selected 16 people initially by lunchtime, because of a late start, then spent the afternoon whittling them down, calling in others, and excusing people for one reason or another. I did not get called up at all, having by chance just not made the top 45 people who did go up. By 4:00 pm they had their final set of 16 and let the remaining 20 of us go home.

The case is civil, between two companies plus a subcontractor, related to problems with foundations of a building constructed on a slope. Apparently serious foundational issues have cropped up, so the case revolves around money to fix them, whose fault it is, whether the statute of limitations has expired, and all that kind of thing. No doubt some of the material presented would be highly technical and boring numericals, but I'd still have liked to go through it and have the experience.

In other news... I've back-posted a few journal entries for late August. Most of these were written close to their posting date and just awaited their included photos.

Speaking of which, Flickr now has Shelley's baby photos from July and August when I was in Iceland, as well as ones I took in August. Enjoy.
