California’s “Juror Appreciation Week” should be mirrored in Texas

Posted on

It’s not very often that you read a headline about something in the Sunshine State needing to be implemented in the Lone Star State. This week however marks “Juror Appreciation Week” in California and we think this is a great time to highlight the need for Texas citizens to answer the call and serve on a jury. If jurors avoid jury service, the quality of justice we receive, as plaintiffs or defendants in a lawsuit, will be diminished. When you are selected to serve on a jury, you as a citizen become an active participant in the administration of justice. Judges and lawyers do not own the courts – ordinary citizens do, which is why it’s important we exercise our duty and our right to serve as jurors.
