Done with trial
Won't be blogging much today, tho. Understand a jury trial means getting up at 6, and working on it until about 10 PM. Lunches wolfed down in haste (you get an hour and a quarter, but some of that is lost walking from courthouse to office, and the rest spent eating quickly while thinking and making notes). Work right through the weekend. 7-8 hours in the courtroom multitasking, simultaneously taking notes, noting if you should object, noting what questions to ask the witness, rooting thru depositions and past statements of the witness, etc. By the end of it you're staggering and getting rather goofy.
I've been in that mode since Feb. 3, and it'll take a while to decompress while waiting for the jury verdict. Which may be a hung jury, since Federal rules require unaminity. Yup, previous guesses as to the case were correct.
