Jury Trials Blowing Away

Today’s robbery jury trial went away because the alleged complaining witness signed an affidavit yesterday swearing that my client hadn’t robbed him (he also swore that he had told the prosecutor the same thing, but the prosecutor claims otherwise). Tomorrow’s DUI jury trial in Harris County is going to be put off because jury call has been canceled — something about a tropical storm bearing down on us.

That leaves my third scheduled jury trial of the week, a DUI in Austin, as the only one that might actually happen. And Austin DWI defense lawyer Jamie Spencer sent me the juror information forms by email, which is pretty cool, in my opinion — in Harris County we don’t get them till the jurors are on their way to the courtroom from the jury assembly building.
