Since this subject somewhat hijacked the Mandeville case thread in road cycling, I thought I'd let the conversation continue in here where it belongs. Some thoughts I've had:
I'm waiting for the day someone sues the court system for making them work for less than the state's minimum wage.
They only pay us for mileage one-way. I am so tempted to serve for a day, then set up a sleeping bag on the bench in the hall and explain to the guard that they didn't give me enough money to go home today, but since I don't have to drive in tomorrow, I'll have enough to go home that day.
People denied an excuse for financial hardship should be able to collect any coincidental late fees and penalties from the court system for anything they can not pay with the lost wages.
So, share your complaints, stories, thoughts, rants, etc.
