Jury Duty

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 18 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

My postings both here and on Simplelinks are likely to be non-existent next week. I’m on a jury and I’ll be in court for at least a week. It’s an intersting case, and once I’m no longer bound by secrecy (could be a very long time), I’ll post some of the details here.

There’s a WiFi hotspot somewhere in the courthouse. NetStumbler detects it, but the signal’s too weak to get a connection. I’ll have to wander around the building and see if I can find a stong enough signal to connect. Meanwhile, if someone knows of a public Wi-Fi node within walking distance of the Sacramento County main courthouse, please let me know.

A friend of mine in NYC is also on a jury this week, for an attempted murder trial. Do you know anything about how long it takes before jurors are allowed to disclose anything? (The trial should be over by Tuesday, but I don't know if he can tell me about it Wednesday or not for three years or what.)

Typically you can talk about the case as soon as it's over. This one's different, but I can't say more.

My jury service is over much sooner than expected, but I'm still under orders not to speak about the case. It's unlikely that I'll ever be released from those orders, so you'll all just have to sit and wonder.
