My jury is well hung.
We had two juries observing our trial tonight, both consisting of teenagers from a local high school. They squirmed, they giggled, they gave us thumbs up when they thought we were doing good, and one of them picked his nose. A lot. And ultimately, they both hung. Considering our case, I think that's a pretty OK result. I did good on the opening and the direct (fabulous witness...she reads the blog!), flubbed the crosses (Hello -- how about just ONE leading question E. Spat? Would that be possible?), and my partner rocked everything she did. So, all in all, a good experience. And, I have never been so glad something is over in my whole life, if for no other reason than I don't have to spend hours and hours every week worrying about and preparing for this trial, and I'm one step closer to the elusive goal of graduation. Thank God. Off to bed at 12:15, just in time to get up at 6 for work. Fantastic.
