Ask the Lawyer: Jury Duty


(WTNH)–It’s Monday, and that means it’s time for our “Ask the Lawyer” segment with New Haven-based attorney Tara Knight. On this edition, we’re talking about jury duty.

When it comes to jury duty, a lot of people look at it like a root canal, but Tara believes that people should look at it differently. We asked her about that, and the following questions:

1. What will judges consider legitimate reasons to get out of jury duty?

2. If you get seated on a murder trial, how many weeks can you expect? How will that affect your income?

3. How rare is it to get seated on a case?

4. What are lawyers looking for in potential jurors?

Check out the video above for much more, and don’t forget to watch News 8 at 5 p.m. every Monday for our “Ask The Lawyer” segment.
