Theaetetus: pute kisses like a man:
if you were asked to leave, you lost credit for the day, and would be required to come another day.  so, improper dress would have no ultimate affect on the jury demographics.

Generally, no... On an individual case by case basis? Absolutely. Particularly if the bailiff determining whether pool participants should be sent home knows what the docket is.


it would only affect that day.  but that day would also be affected by a previous day when people were sent home and they are returning that day.

so, maybe the first day that this system was put in place was wrought with this slight injustice.

/ however, i've never seen any sent home for dress. how frequent is that for jury summons?

Unless they also get sent home those other days... But regardless, it still screws with the civil rights of anyone on that first day (or any other day the jury pool is "filtered").

Don't know. Part of the problem is that there are no records kept on it, whatsoever. We know it happens, but that's all we know.

it really sounds like a negligible problem.  anyways, the only requirement is no short shorts, tank tops, dark glasses, caps, or hats.

so, basically we're talking about short shorts or tank tops.  you can come in jeans and a t-shirt.
