Thank you, thank you, thank you to the plaintiffs' attorney who dismissed me from the case right before lunchtime today. I am saved two months of boring jury duty. :D
It was a civil lawsuit; a man who's dying of cancer is suing about eight different companies for asbestos exposure. Perhaps it's good I didn't know until just now that mesothelioma is nearly always linked to asbestos. If I had known I wouldn't have been so skeptical of the plaintiff, and it was my skepticism that got me off the case. Mind you, I still don't know how it could be shown that all eight companies are liable. May justice prevail, and I'm so glad I don't have any of the responsibility for making that happen.
Say, isn't this great weather for July? I have the front and back balcony doors open in my apartment and there's a very nice cross-breeze.
Life is beautiful.
