<Go to any town and watch the jury selection process. NO ONE who works wants to serve on a jury despite your suggestion to the opposite. The doctors, lawyers, businessmen, anyone with any degree of pull won't even appear for the process because they will have their lawyer (or they themselves) call the judge and get themselves excused before the process even begins. I know because that's how I handled it when I was called, a process suggested to me by several others who had similarly gotten off. As a result, it is difficult, if not impossible to get jury of your peers (at least in terms of a decent level of sophistication). One of the jurors even said they didn't understand the science AND THEREFORE THEY IGNORED IT.>It is worse than this. Lawyers for plaintiffs such as this do not want an educated professional on the jury. They dont want anyone taught to think critically or with experience in managing people or skill in molding opinions. They want folks who are easily influenced. They want people who watch Oprah and empathize. So, if you are an educated professional, or anyone who will be able to understand the FACTS presented, you can be assured that you will not be picked for the jury, even if you consider it your "duty" to show up for the jury call.
