Two jurors have been dismissed from the Roger Clemens trial for sleeping
I haven’t been following the Roger Clemens trial because, quite frankly, I don’t care. I’m tired of Clemens. I’m tired of talk about performance-enhancing drugs. I don’t think, at this point, the findings of a government-led witch hunt are going to change many people’s opinion of Clemens. I’m definitely not a legal junkie. And, honestly, I’m not really a fan of “celebrity” trials that don’t involve decidedly sordid or salacious subject matter. (It’s true. Michael Jackson and O.J. Simpson have spoiled me). I’m completely indifferent to the whole spectacle.
Apparently I’m not the only one failing to muster any interest in this case. Here’s the AP:
The trial is in its fifth week, and the tedium cost the proceedings another member of the jury Tuesday. Juror No. 1, a supermarket cashier, became the second member of the panel to be dismissed for sleeping. Her departure leaves 14 jurors, including two alternates.
So there you go. The most interesting piece of information from the Clemens trial thus far is that two people have been kicked off the jury because of how boring it is.
That might be as good as this trial gets. But if you’re desperate for anything else fascinating about this case, you might want to check out the profiles of the remaining jury members. Juror No. 3 likes reading and baking. Juror No. 8 enjoys photography and fabric art.
