    The law in California says that jurors must be selected at random. Therefore, people cant volunteer.

    The cops got lucky on this one.

    Your location says Idaho. Were you trying to go to California and volunteer as a "non Resident Juror??" Can't understand why they wouldn't want to allow that? They've already got enough non resident Mexicans there, why not allow somebody from other states too.

    How do you figure?

    I mean, obviously the cops don't want citizens who want to be jurors to do so (even if volunteering were legal). So it's not a very good honey pot.

    Volunteer for Common Law Grand Jury Duty here, as I have done.

    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    If I got on any case with a victimless crime I was going to vote not guilty.

    Both states select from DL registration/voter rolls, neither of which allow representation in two states.

    Right. I guess I didn't mean to ask "how do you figure?" so much as "and were you surprised?"

    They'd have to enforce that first.

    You are free to do so with any case that you are a jurist on. I would not recommend you telling the reason why.
