As I type this, my wife is deliberating with 11 other people over a case in Federal Court. She's been on the jury all week, and today they get the case.
I hope it will be over soon, as the implications of their decision will drastically affect the lives of several people. She's nervous about it, and scenarios like those in fiction where jurists are retaliated against weigh heavily on my own mind.
I just hope the case is so overwhelming one way or the other that the verdict is reached quickly and all can go home.
UPDATE: Trial's over! That was quick. Unanimous verdict, with only brief deliberation. Read about it in the papers tomorrow...
