What Recession? Mich. County’s Pagers Will Let Potential Jurors Shop

ABA Journal
No-shows for jury duty could soon be much less of a problem in one Michigan county, which plans to distribute pagers in the near future so that potential jurors can shop at downtown stores while they are waiting to be called into a courtroom.

The new system will require prospective jurors in Macomb County to return to the courthouse within 10 minutes of being paged, reports the National Law Journal. It is one of a number of new options and incentives being offered at courthouses around the country, to make showing up for jury service less burdensome.
