For 1,200 people in California that were told to show up for jury duty this week, there was good news and bad news. The good news was they really didn’t have jury duty that day. The bad news? About 800 of those notified hoofed it all the way to the courthouse just because of a computer glitch.
Yapping about how you lied to get out of anything mandatory is always a bad idea if you don’t want to get caught, but doing it publicly over the airwaves to crow over how you got out of jury duty? That’s just begging for trouble, as a woman in Denver found out recently.
