Jury Duty

Recommended Posts

The plaintiff was a former law professor, so at least I don't feel bad for him, he knew what he was getting into, but both he and his lawyer where ridiculous. He lawyer was treating this like a murder had been committed. He used words like "mutilation" when describing the pruning.  The hedge was an English Ivy hedge, which is now listed as a noxious weed in the city where I live, because of this nurseries in the city don't sell it. But at one point one of 3 experts that the plaintiff had called, and paid to be there, was explaining this to the jury, and then the lawyer said "So your saying the hedge is irreplaceable!" to which the expert said "No, that is not what I am saying at all." His own experts where saying how the hedge was fine, and would completely recover and there was no need to replace it. It was a bit surreal.
