1 Answer from Attorneys
The judge will view your position as very ill informed about the third branch of government, the court system. The attorneys -they have some say so in selecting jurors- will likely not want you to serve because of your lack of knowledge on our system of government and they could view your position as not wanting to keep an open mind until you hear all of the facts of a case before you make a judgment.
