It’s juror appreciation week down here at Kings County Supreme Court! What do I get in my manilla envelope of appreciation? A photocopied certificate of appreciation, a handy little NY State juror pen, a trail mix bar, and an ad for tkts in downtown Brooklyn, which apparently has just been welcomed by MetroTech Center.
In addition to all these goodies we got to watch a pretty kickass juror orientation video that started out with some medieval dude getting tossed in the water (but NOT drowning, LAME!) and ended with Diane Sawyer telling us how exciting jury duty can be. Yes, that’s the word I’m looking for: Exciting! It’s like NASCAR in a courthouse!
